About the Photograph:
“I photographed these volleyball fans in Poland. We Poles are considered one of the most impassioned fans in the world. It was the last minute of the final round between Poland and United States when I made this photo of the spectators watching the game on a giant video screen. I concentrated on their emotions rather than the actual players. This shot was from the last minute of the game.”
