Dynamism, rigor, drama, nostalgia, sweat, stories of heroes and defeats as well as a whiff of wickedness - the world of boxing attracts a lot of photographers, writers, and the perceived better society.
Women have long since affirmed their place in this male domain and enhanced boxing with their own feminine tone.
Anja Schori is herself a boxer and takes part in competitions.
Thus it made sense to get closer to her sport with the camera.
She initially wanted to photograph male trainers, but things don't tend to go too well with men.
Thus she focused her camera right on her comrades in gender and training partners.
In her photographs, she confidently emphasizes feminity, mixing documental boxing scenes with fashionable staging, reality with fiction, black & white with color, sharpness with blurs - all in her magazine BOX.
It's all about boxing, of course, but a boxer's black eye can also be presented to us here in the form of an eye-patch worn by an attractive brunette woman.
