The challenge of sports photography is finding a way to capture that split second of action which the naked eye can barely register, those precise and illuminating flashes which reveal and encapsulate in the same moment. In boxing, this means images which are powerful, exquisite, violent or even repellent, or maybe all at the same time. Jeff Lockhart is not yet a well-known name in sports photography, and he may not be as prolific as our friend Bob Levesque, but few lensmen are better at capturing instances of sudden and dramatic action to create images of great impact and beauty. His camera has been ringside for a number of major fight cards and we are proud to feature here some of his most striking and memorable shots.
