Lethal Ladies

Being tough is not about beating people up.

Being tough is about being fearless, and taking a challenge head on. Knowing who you are and being at peace with your inner self.

Having the discipline and self control to put in the practice, day in and day out, and condition your mind and your body to achieve greatness.

I had created several kickboxing documentaries before, but In 2014, I undertook a personal project photographing some of the Muay Thai fighters from the “Lethal Ladies” camp. They definitely lived up to their name in the ring ! In the studio they were some of the loveliest people I have ever photographed. Some were even a bit shy, but the shoot was a total success and really fun to do.

I learned about the art of Muay Thai and what it means to these fighters.
