Dan Burn-Forti for Stella Magazine
Dan Burn-Forti photographed the Pole Sports World Championships for The Sunday Telegraph's Stella Magazine! Read the full story here.
"This was definitely not what I expected it to be. Pole Sports is not pole dancing. Well, actually, apart from the addition of clothing, I couldn't really see what the difference was. But the organizers were at pains to point out that it was a serious sport, with Olympic aspirations, not some sleazy strip joint activity. Kind of looked at first like ladies dancing with a pole to me, but what do I know. Having said that, there were plenty of seniors, children and men competing, so it was a good job they'd added clothes and dropped the writhing about, otherwise i'm not sure I'd have of known where to look."
