the sweet science

05/02/12 , , , ,

whether it’s in photos or videos, i love seeing images with multiple frames of contrasting action.  case in point, this pic from a 1955 boxing match (via siphotos).  the brutal sight of an unconscious tony demarco might attract your eyes first, but there is also the joy of a victorious carmen basillo celebrating a 12th round knockout.  the two frames fight against each other emotionally.  however as a whole, they work together in perfectly showing the highs and lows of boxing.

I love the art of boxing, and it is a craft above all other sports. But what does it say about us that we so heartily celebrate a spectacle in which one man’s ascent depends so much on the crash of another.

It is cruel. It is beautiful.
