I was recently interviewed about my Prison Fight photographs by JOIA Magazine, a fine art publication out of Chile in South America. I love the layouts and the minimalist designs. It’s always nice to see editors and art directors doing great things with photography. Makes me super happy. So thanks to Alvaro and his team. Keep up the amazing work; I’m honored to be part of the current issue.

AJS Vice Magazine Thai Prison Fights-1

Last month a designer at Vice Magazine got in touch to ask about using one of my images for an advertisement for their Fightland series. They had previously filmed at Klong Prem, the same penitentiary I photographed for my Prison Fights story, so the connection made a lot of sense. I was able to get inside some of the cells and take portraits of the same prisoners they had filmed fighting in the ring. I’m super happy with how they treated the design; I think it looks great. The image above is a little before and after sequence.

You can also read more about these Prison Fights and see another of my photographs over at TIME. Here’s a link to the story: Prison Inmates in Thailand Fight Foreigners for Their Freedom. Good stuff.
