In Cuba, the bodybuilding culture is largely underground. Bodybuilders manage to sculpt their bodies to this extreme level despite lacking many necessary resources. Chang explains that “gyms without the basic requirements, deficient meals, and nonexistent vitamins” make it difficult for most Cubans to maintain an average level of health, let alone achieve the perfectly honed muscles bodybuilding requires. Some competitors’ families in the U.S. ship them vitamins and supplements, but most have to make do without. A lot can depend on their day jobs as well; restaurant workers, for instance, benefit from their easy access to food. (Text by Anna Lukacs and Elizabeth Krist)
Aleksandr Gusakov is a graphic designer from Ukraine. I really like this as it has so much depth to it. The flowers come out at you. Although i haven’t put much thought into what my final outcome will be, I like the outcome of this and maybe I could experiment to making this work for the typography in my final piece to represent the trolls hiding behind their online usernames and words they write?
