In Olympic Backstage, Enzo Lefort has documented the backstage of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Postponed to the following year due to the pandemic, a singular climate reigns over the Olympic village. With the ban on leaving the hotel outside of training and competitions, and health restrictions intermingled with the stress of the events, photography is a real escape route.
The photographs are combined with the written word and memories to give a better account of these three weeks of extraordinary preparation, rewarded by the award of a gold medal.
In this first book published by Fisheye, Enzo Lefort looks back on this atypical adventure while paying tribute to his teammates.
Accompanied by Steven Alexis – creative director and founder of the design studio Bureau Pléiades – the two of them imagine an immersive experience.
