A Coral Springs photographer’s exhibition focuses on the mental and physical health of student-athletes.
Lauren Sopourn said the scope of her project Grayscale Grind encompasses the themes and emotions of dedication, perseverance, fear, anticipation, resilience, and the fragile state of an athlete’s hope to remain in peak physical and mental health.
In its essence, it seeks to bring light to the health of male student-athletes who are often overlooked or, more commonly, ignored. Pointing out that November is a men’s health awareness month.
“Grayscale Grind as a series is more attentive to portraying the deeper, less known truths regarding the emotions of student-athletes,” she explained. “It shows that they are more than tackles, catches, fumbles, interceptions, touchdowns, and sacks – they are human.”
A resident of Coral Springs, Lauren Sopourn is now a senior at Florida Atlantic University, working on her bachelor’s in fine arts with a focus on photography. Her project Grayscale Grind opens on Friday, November 12, at 6:30 pm, at the Ritter Art Gallery at FAU, part of the Fall Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition at the gallery, running through December 3.
