Photographer's Note

this was taken during the weekend kickboxing tournament in phnom penh. hardly any foreigners know about it and that's the good part. the atmosphere was electrifying. during the matches, i sneaked inside the dressing room of the boxers. it was dark and a little misty because of the perspiration. on the floor there was puke and blood all over. there was a lot chaos with all the strategising , puking , warming up etc etc etc. i met this kickboxer. really nice guy. forgot his name . it was too long to remember. he had just lost a match . his right arm was broken . he had a pretty bad fracture; it was almost a compound fracture. his elbow joint was almost ripping out the skin. anyway when i was making his portrait, he didnt try to stop me. luckily!!!! the only hinderance was another boxer who found my leg to puke blood on which i completely forgot about and only washed the next morning.:) i was backpacking , i was allowed to be a lil dirty. there was a little sunlight streaming through a window and i also bounced the flash off the side wall to try and get in a lil details. the darkness was intended and people whove been seeing my other photographs should know by now that im in love with dark photography.
