Books for Your Library: ‘Fighter: The Fighters of the UFC’

leave a comment »

Photo books are a great addition to any library. As photographers, we are constantly searching for new ideas and are always interested in seeing concepts-done-well. Here’s a suggestion to add to your library …

Reed Krakoff’s recent work, “Fighter: The Fighters of the UFC,” is a stunning and not-too-often seen look at the men who fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Krakoff, the president and executive creative director of Coach, is a fan of the UFC and trained his Mamiya medium format camera on capturing images of the fighters in a new light. This project may deviate from his usual fashion photography, but his background allows him a unique perspective in photographing the fighters.

Krakoff studied photography at Parsons School of Design and has shot many of the Coach ad campaigns over the years.

The 224-page hardcover book features such fighters as Mac Danzig, Diego Sanchez, Chuck Liddell, George St-Pierre and Matt Sera. It is available at Amazon.
