Focused on the world of boxing, photographer Holger Keifel has captured more than 370 fighters, promoters and trainers in his last six years of shooting. Now the German-born photographer is exhibiting a selection of these powerful and detailed portraits that include Don King’s iced-out jewelry and Evander Holyfield’s gnawed off ear among other fantastic mutilations. “The Face of Boxing“ is on display through October 30th at the Prince George Gallery, 15 east 27th street.
