DNA PHOTOGRAPHERS FOR ASICS

Desmond went to Kenya to document the ASICS Chojo training camp in Iten. “Walking a few sets of stairs to my bedroom gasping for air I realised the altitude”, says Des. Iten sits 2400 meters high. That’s why the world of endurance athletes comes here to train. We had the honour of shooting Antonina Kwambai (Toronto marathon winner 2022), Mekdes Woldu (French half marathon record holder), John Korir (LA marathon winner 2022) and loads of other champions.
