Medusa Jump

Medusa Jump
by Richard Heathcote

Tara Davis of Team United States competes in the Women’s Long Jump final of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The image shows her from above, at the end of the jump, with the dark earth in the background. The hair in motion and the muscles in contraction give rhythm to the shot and guide the observer’s gaze.
