Photos of the Day: Friday Night Fights in New York City

Photography by: Allison Grippo

Friday Night Fights in New York City is a selection of black and white photographs by Alison Grippo from her documentary about amateur and professional boxing in New York City. The photographs are of both amateur and recently turned professional boxers in New York City, who gather almost every month in St. Paul’s Church on 59th Street in Manhattan. Grippo has said of her project: “Every fighter has a story, from finding God to emigrating to the United States and I am trying to find them all. Each boxer trains for something bigger than themselves, for the opportunity to create a legacy, to be remembered.”
