Following Boxers In Ghana With Andreas Jakwerth

Andreas Jakwerth, a Vienna based photographer who’s curiosity brought him to the slums of  Ghana’s capitol Accra where he shot the series titled ‘Jamestown Knockout’.

During his odyssey he’s came face-to-face with boxers whom “train to get out of the slums,” Jakewerth understandingly expresses, “to have a better life for their families and themselves.” Throughout seeing these boxers minds and hustle, he documented the reality of the fire-filled trainees displaying sweat, dedication, and determined hearts. “Sweat running down his face I take a portrait, it shows his state of mind: Beaten but willing to give even more.”
