Anson Chan was introduced to me through my friend Bobby (another guy that I photographed for my second book 2.AM). He possessed a body that was brimming with youthful energy. It was hard to contain him, as he’s an athlete, a long distance runner. He knew exactly what his body could do. The image that you see here was something that came towards the end of the shoot, when he politely did the splits and slumped his elbows down to the floor. To get the shot, I pulled the softbox down almost directly over his head, and wah-la, there we had it.
