Participation in the Malta Marathon has been steadily increasing year after year. It has become more than a marathon. People of all ages are entering for other reasons than just finishing among the top 10. Even the die hard athletes have other reasons apart from physical fitness. Some enter after recovering from an illness, others do it to collect money for charity , for the fun of it or just for a personal challenge. What ever the reasons, it is a tough marathon and at some point all participants are lost in taught until the finish line.
This year I focused on their facial expressions. What is on their mind while their muscles ache?

Photography has been part of my life since before I was born, my father was a keen photographer who had invested in his own developing equipment. This passion grew with every issue of Life and many other news magazines I used to read instead of doing school home work. Unfortunately I never got the chance to work for Life Magazine, Time Magazine nor any foreign news paper but I have always carried some sort of camera to capture that “Kodak Moment”. Those magazine articles taught me that only a few shots are needed to tell a story, so when combined with the cost of film and developing I learnt to take my time to think and observe before pressing the shutter. Traveling around Australia for a year in 2005 was the biggest learning boost for me. A backpacker on a tight budget, film/developing much more expensive Down Under, living in areas rarely visited by foreigners and getting around on my bicycle I patiently and carefully documented the experience. Australia is a photographers paradise!
