About the shot :

This picture shows a member of the Dongfeng crew engaged in the Volvo Ocean Race climbing the mast when the boat is doing good speed. I called this picture "Speed Vertigo", how this action shot illustrate for him this incredible mixture of bravoure, intensity, adventure spirit, mental and physical strengh that you need to enter those around the world races. The fact that nearly half of the Dongfeng team is made of "unexperienced" chinese young guns is also part of the symbolic meaning of that picture. These guys are now facing a deep challenge !
