Profoto B1 gave Richard Wade the speed and flexibility to freeze Belfast boxers in time as they trained. The images tell stories of men who go to the gym not just to look good but to fight someone. Not just to be strong, but to be tough. Not to just work out, but maybe to work something out.

The monochrome photos were taken for an exhibition this spring at the Titanic Museum in Belfast alongside the work of internationally renowned photographer Larry Fink. The images capture years or even decades of latent history with every crease on the boxers’ faces. Light breaks around every shadowy curve and hollow of muscles toughened by punches. “The true character and toughness of the fighters was captured by the beautiful light the B1’s produced,” Wade says.
