We are all familiar with the fact that boxing is, well…a pretty brutal combat sport. Of course boxers get out in the ring completely normal and clean, and comes back all bloody, sweaty and gross. Danish artist Nicolai Howalt has started a project that he calls “Boxer” where he photographs boxers before and after they go to fight. Every photo is raw but artistic.
You can see the blood and how exhausted they look. Most of them are so young that it’s somehow disturbing to see blood on their face and t-shirts. Some even look like they’ve been crying, or maybe it’s just all the sweat that’s running down. I just know I wouldn’t want my kids to become boxers. Speaking of raw style in photography, here are some stunning photos of a white tiger hunting bloody meat under water.
