The Start of the Sprinters

"The Start of the Sprinters’ Dash is a photograph of the start of an athletics race. The models were athletes from the US forces stationed at the air base in Tachikawa, and Japanese amateur athletes. The shot was taken in the National Stadium on an icy cold night, and over 60 attempts were required to obtain the perfect result. For Hayasaki, it was one of the most challenging undertakings he had ever attempted."
