This project reflects the combat sports and fighters I have photographed since the beginning of this journey. From training camp, to the actual fight, and portraits immortalizing these unique athletes, my goal is to give people an inside view of how boxing and mixed martial art fighters interact in their respective worlds, away from the limelight.
