Poseidon was known in Greek mythology as the supreme god of the sea. Someone old, strong-bodied, with a beard and curly hair. In this session, in the Bahamas, it was with someone similar I came across. Someone with the same force in the picture and a special relationship with the nature of the scenario. While interpreting the power of the sea and the sand in perfect communion, I caught the dynamics of his movements and his bodily expression. It was a magical encounter, of a kind of mythology that approached the real, in intimate and momentary contact.
