Oscar Pistorius for The New York Times
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Oscar Pistorius, a South African sprinter and model of the new advertising campaign for Thierry Mugler A★Men fragrance for the Styles section of The New York Times. On the track Oscar is known as Blade Runner, “the fastest man on no legs.” A double amputee, he runs on J-shaped prosthetics made of carbon fiber. As you may recall I recently finished a longer documentary story on another double amputee athlete named Damian Lopez Alfonso. Oscar was a very amiable man, very easy going and so fun to work with. Here are a few flicks from the shoot.
