Renowned creative director Reed Krakoff is also an accomplished photographer. He is a UFC fan and offers a unique look at these world-class athletes in a startling collection of black- and-white photographs. He depict these fighters as they are rarely seen: gentle, warm, humble, and disarmed but obviously built for the cage. The book features some of the biggest names in the UFC – iconic fighters such as Chuck Liddell, Georges St-Pierre, and Matt Serra pose for the camera in ways that are real and revealing. Accompanying these shots are brief interviews that offer another perspective on these modern-day gladiators. 224 pages, 28 x 23 x 3 cm, black & white, english language, published by Putnam.
