“Schwarzenegger is my idol” by Sergey Melnitchenko

‘This is the story about young guys from Mykolayiv (Ukraine) who are united by one thing – it’s a goal to become the best of the best and they will do everything to achieve it. The photos show young people engaged in athletics, acrobatics, fitness, and bodybuilding. I asked one of the boys to tell me what role his hobby plays in his life. Here’s what he told me: “For me, my sport is what I live for. Daily control and hard work – that leads me to success. Sport disciplines a man, enables him to understand the value of labor, the value of choice. I always wanted to be something more than an ordinary man in the street, more colossal than an ordinary representative of the society, so in my sport I do all the best I can, because I want to reach the top”. 
Why are my «models» naked on photos? I think it adds them a kind of courage and naturalness. Of course it also looks funny and ironic. The series was created between 2012 and 2013.’

"Un cappellino rosa con la visiera, una felpa rosa, parigine e tatuaggi. L’ho trovata così, con lo sguardo insolente. Non ho potuto non chiederle qualche scatto, anche di fretta, anche senza posare. L’ho trovata così, con lo sguardo arrogante. Sicura come non sono io. Una scala al neon rosa...
