How To Hug and Other Sublimations of Men

85 images Created 8 Apr 2011

"How to Hug and Other Sublimations of Men" is an expressionistic interpretation of the modern sport of mixed martial arts, aka Cagefighting. For the past two years, I have been photographing southern Illinois athletes, young and old, at ringside with camera in hand.

These images were originally shot with a DSLR, edited in Photoshop and printed on Hahnemuhle photo rag paper. The abrasive ink movements on the surface of the prints was applied after the printing process to evoke a sense of sublimation and movement.
