Poised at the edge of a boxing ring located in the courtyard of Bangkok’s Klong Prem prison, Vietnam-based photographer Aaron Joel Santos captures inmates as they prepare for Muay Thai fights that could determine the rest of their lives. Since 2013, the the Correctional Department of Thailand has worked alongside Prison Fight, a charity organization that provides gear and boxing training to maximum security inmates. Hundreds of Thai prisoners, convicted of crimes ranging from theft to murder, become highly-skilled athletes in hopes of beating free foreign fighters and earning a reduced sentence.
With a passion for all things surf, New Jersey-based photographer Ryan Struck strives to find beauty in a single instant of sport, from the tumbling of a wave to a splashing dive beneath the surface. Traveling the beaches of New Jersey to the base of the towering waves of Teahupo’o, Tahiti, Struck captures one-of-a-kind breaking waves bathed in natural sunlight.
