The Aura of Boxing –The Contact Sheets is Kandhola’s photographic study, begun in 1996, into the aesthetic and moral conflicts of the boxer within the spatial interior of the pugilistic landscape.
The contact sheet is the authentic eye of the photographer; it provides an intimate and highly personal and private encounter. Kandhola photographed boxers at different weight divisions: amateur and professional; unknown boxers; contenders; champions, and the boxing journeyman.
Max Kandhola: The Aura of Boxing – The Contact Sheets exhibition is on display at the Chocolate Factory, on John Street via Siddals Road, in Derby until April 19.
