Muscles and sweat. Hope and fear. Determination. Exhilaration. Desperation. Larry Fink’s crisp images capture the drama in and out of the ring, and they pack a wallop. They also present a powerful argument for the superiority of black-and-white photography over color, which would have weakened their impact considerably. You don’t have to be a fan of this brutal sport to appreciate Fink’s artistry. Award-winning sportswriter Bert Sugar’s essay on the history of boxing is a nice complement to the illustrations.
