Imagine to wake up one day and set a boat down on the ocean. Your goal is to row cross the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific too. On a rowing boat. Draw your boat on any map and you may get breathless. Imagine waves' fury during your journey. Continuous splashes and great fatigue.
Alex Bellini is this. He set his boat down on the ocean.
Now look at your map and trace a line between Los Angeles and New York. 5200 km. A huge distance to run.
This is the LA-NY Footrace. How much sweat, how many blisters, how many heartbeats, stand up and run without rest .
Lao-Tzu wrote: "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"
Alex Bellini is this also. He made his first step.
He is a symbolic athlete. No matters if you run a marathon or play an amateur basketball match; if you defy the strongest rugby team in the world, what matters is that you set your boat down on the ocean, or you make your first step. That's the way dreams come true.
2.8 was created to bring the Sport to our soul through photography.
Mauro Talamonti followed Alex Bellini,day after day, night after night, from Los Angeles to New York, turning a sport event into a life experience
Veterans, Indians, kids playing basketball seem protective spirits around their journey.
Renato Grignaschi. Thanks to his great portraiture experience around the world he met and photographed the most important figures in sports and entertainment
Gino Nalini: Lives in Australia, where he contributes with high profile photography magazine as Black+White.
Andrea Raso: Contributes with GQ and other prestigious magazines.
Each of them with their own photographic language. A single subject, different visuals.
For the upcoming 3rd issue we will preview our dream. A single photo, winner of the World Press Photo 2012.
Shot by Donald Miralle , a widely recognised sports photographer , winner of the greatest international awards.
When photography becomes art at its best. The third issue will be devoted to his glamorous shots.
For 2.8 is an honor.
We set our boat down on the ocean too.
