Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
It's no wonder that photographer Howard Schatz, trained as an ophthalmologist, has an unwavering eye for the human form. Well known for his series of improvisional portraits of actors for "Vanity Fair," the acclaimed photographer now takes on the ultimate theatre of sport and physique in "At the Fights." Over the last six years Schatz has entrenched himself in the world of boxing, photographing and interviewing the game's biggest stars and newest players as well as managers, trainers, promoters, club fighters and many others. In 256 oversized pages, Schatz's remarkably powerful images are paired with insightful commentary to provide a truly unique look into the sport. As promoter Lou DiBella tells Schatz, "Boxing is a sport in its purest, most basic form. No sport is more theatrical, dramatic or real." "At the Fights" beautifully captures all of those aspects in a striking, deluxe package that includes introductory comments by HBO commentator Jim Lampley.
Howard Schatz's award-winning photography has been featured in "Sports Illustrated," "ESPN Magazine," "The Ring" magazine, "The New York Times Magazine" and "Vanity Fair." He is a well-known and regular ringside presence. "At the Fights" will be his 19th book.
