Portraits of Fighters Before and After Boxing Matches

For his project titled 141 Boxers, photographer Nicolai Howalt shot portraits of boxers before and after boxing matches. The images side-by-side tell the stories of what happened in between when they were captured.

The photographs have also been published in a book titled 78 BOXERS. Also, be sure to check out Claire Felicie’s portraits of soldiers before, during, and after war.

  • Robby Cornish

    more like BEFORE/AFTER photos from the set of The Walking Dead.

  • Blackbox

    This is way better than her soldier portraits.

  • Idrifter

    Group 2 and 4 shows remarkable differences. Its in their eyes.

  • Mauricio Andres Ramirez Lozada

    waaaaaaaaay better

  • Joe Blount

    I notice a lot more confidence in their eyes in some. The UFC has been doing this for awhile, but I still liked these.

  • Catalin Scarlat

    it would be nice to say what was the ending of the fight.
