Cage fighting is a form of MMA (mixed martial arts) that one one hand fascinates millions of people throughout the world and on the other hand is being highly criticized for its brutality.

In September 2014 I had the chance to peek behind the scenes of an amateur cage fighting event in Ft. Myers, Florida. My goal was to capture this certain kind of aesthetics that may only occur when two humans in an octagonal cage put up in a multipurpose hall give everything to defeat each other.
