We present you a reportage and a portrait series on the Canoe Sprint & Paracanoe World Championships which took place in 2018 in Portugal’s Montemor-o-Velho. The photos show a beautiful blend of the participating athletes with their coaches – all from different countries, all with their very own personal stories and fates, and all united by their love for canoeing.

Anke Luckmann photographed both the athletes and the para-canoeists who took part in the Canoe Sprint competitions. “Where some left their bath slippers on the dock to get on the boot, others left their protheses and wheel chairs standing and laying around.” Anke Luckmann tells GoSee impressed and sums up: “Incredible athletes – and each a fighter in their own right…”.

“It’s going to be a tough journey” – Anke Luckmann portrayed climate activist Greta Thunberg for STERN mag ahead of her big trip to America

In their sail boot Malizia II, it was off to New York from Plymouth, England, for Greta Thunberg and her father. On 28 August, 2019, the climate activist arrived in New York and was welcomed by numerous sympathizers. She was greeted there by seventeen sail boots sent by the UN, each displaying one of the climate goals for sustainable development announced by the United Nations. There the environmental activist spoke to the assembly and met with world leaders, whom she – as could be expected – bravely stood up to.

The school strikes for the climate initiated by Greta have meanwhile grown to become the global “Fridays for Future” movement; millions of people all over the world have now committed to her, and our, common cause. The journey for Greta began when she started saving energy at home by shutting off lights wherever possible, when she refused to fly and finally decided to become vegan.

The young and focused Swedish heroine was portrayed by ANKE LUCKMANN for STERN magazine before her departure.
