    Edit Photo Details Nicole Ross, Team USA   #fencing #team_usa
    The US Women’s foil fencing team recently made history becoming the first American foil team to win gold at the world championships. Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph Nicole Ross from that very US Women's foil team. I found myself fixated on the personal details of her equipment. Her sharpied name, old athletic tape and inspection stickers tell a simple story of hard work and dedication.

    Incredible job making a portrait of a person that isn't about what they look like. I love the details around this image that tell us about our character, what she does, what she is wearing and her worn equipment that communicate her dedication and love for a sport she excels in. It's a wonderful detail portrait. I simply love it.
