The Aura of Boxing The Contact Sheets
Project info

Aura of Boxing began as a documentary to photograph the canvas floor of the boxing ring. The canvas is the boxers sacred shroud, on which you may fall and are engulfed by the weight of the cloth, or you are resurrected to perform another day. On the canvas this is where all things happen. The canvas is a blank sheet of paper, a mystic writing pad , prepared each time a boxer enters the ring and the performance begins. The trace of the boxer is a sketched ephemeral imprint, as a new scripture is written, orchestrated by the subtle ballet movements of the body and feet.
