The “Arnold Classic - Backstage” series particularly resonates with Parel because it represents his debut as an artist and a world that he knows well, himself being a former bodybuilder. For four years, he captured bodybuilding competitions from Bienne to Johannesburg.

David Nicolas Parel immersed himself behind the scenes in the world's most important bodybuilding and fitness competitions: The Arnold Classic. These events are organized on five continents by Arnold Schwarzenegger, himself former star of the discipline. Backstages are usually forbidden to photographers, David was able to follow the life of these scenes and shoot moments of intimacy of the professional athletes and also Arnold Schwarzenegger and his team. The series sheds light on an intimate world. Beyond the fascination for supernatural bodies, the images highlight the humanity and solitude of these athletes.
