“Live, Train, Fight like Thai” is a photo essay/documentary that documents the sport of Muay Thai in NZ over the last 10 years.
I have spent many hours at gyms and fight nights in that time, mostly at the invitation of City Lee Gar, which is the first Muay Thai based gym to be established in NZ.
This exhibition and book is the culmination of my work.
