A diver has a very personal moment of dejection at the bottom of the pool during the 2012 CCCA Swimming and Diving State Championships at East Los Angeles College Swim Stadium on Thursday, April 26, 2012 in Monterey Park, CA. (Photo by Suzanne Tylander © 2012) This particular photo represents an emotional moment rarely caught underwater. This particular diver was expected to win the entire event. The diver knew as soon as he hit the water his form was flawed and that he might have just lost it all. I was fortunate enough to witness this moment as it was unfolding underwater. I captured the sequence of emotion just a split second after he hit the water and began to sink to the bottom with a sense of defeat written in his body language This was the image I chose from the series. I have felt this emotion and disappointment before as many athletes do. My chance to capture it underwater was rare but beautiful. It is a moment no competitive athlete wants to relive but something important that many of us can relate to. It is raw and human and real.


this post is deep… no pun intended

i know this exact feeling from swimming, knowing you ruined your race right after you get to the wall, the feeling of shame in disappointment in yourself can be crushing

"If there was any indicator that The 1975 had well and truly ‘made it’, this show was it, and there was no better setting. Few bands can hold an audience in the palm of their hand quite like this four piece, and whilst every element of their live show seems gargantuan and fitting for the festival headline slots that will no doubt await them in the coming years, there is still a refreshing sense of naivety and emotion on display which ultimately leaves us rooting for them throughout, and will continue to for years to come."
