Muay Thai

A look into the world of Muay Thai across different abilities and ages at the Ao Nang training centre in southern Thailand.

Shot in an entirely reportage way, I was looking to record a fly on the wall insight into the sport with a particular focus on the preparation, be it the rituals, stretching and getting psyched up for a fight. I used the lights available in the venues to help set the environment and add additional texture to this already colourful event.

The passion of the fighters is coupled with the, at times, even more impassioned response from the local crowd, who bet on the fighters and jostle in an attempt to distract oppositions.
