MESSAGE

  • The spiritual strength
    of para athletes is the essence
    of human power and a source
    of inspiration for all of us.
  • Their resilience makes
    their bodies shine.
  • I wanted to capture their aura
    with an approach that focused
    on their strength and beauty.
  • Having had the pleasure
    of witnessing this first-hand,
    I’d now like to share
    it with others.

ABOUT

GO Journal is a magazine where the excitement of para sports, the efforts of para athletes(the exertions of para athletes/the spirit of para athletes)and the culture converge. It aims to burst the bottleneck of prejudice against watching para sports—that the disabled are pitiable, and their sports unfamiliar and dull—and trigger actions by every individual to promote a diversity and inclusion(D&I)society through sports.
