“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.’
