Palestinian Boxer

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

THIS link will show you a quite amazing image of 70-year-old Mohammed Shuhadeh, who runs a gym in the West Bank town of Jenin. He was a boxing champion in the 1980s, and claims to have been the first person to open a gym in the Palestinian territories 40 years ago.

That shot is just one of a series taken by the AP photography agency, more of which can be seen here, albeit on a smaller scale. Click the right arrow to scroll through the images, which are beautiful not only for how they look, but for the story they clearly tell. Every time I look at any of the shots of Shuhadeh’s gym, I see a new detail.
