Kevin Lynch: Octagon

17 January - 2 February 2008

In 2008 American-born photographer Kevin Lynch exhibited his conceptual portraiture series Octagon: Ultimate Fighting Championship. These works chronicled the culture and extraordinary athleticism of the mixed martial art fighting champions.

 

Lynch embarked on a four-year project with the UFC, which results in the Octagon series of art works, as well as the publication of a deluxe, limited edition artist book by Powerhouse and Zuffa, LLC, which includes an introduction by David Mamet and essay by Dave Hickey.

 

Octagon should speak to an unusually eclectic readership: fight enthusiasts, photography and fine art collectors, anyone and everyone interested in a primal corner of Americana.
