Every year in September the traditional Odwira Festival is celebrated in Akuapem, Ghana, integrating multiple cultural, religious and traditional activities. Among them is Boxing. This project includes two sets of images of various fightings taking place in that occasion in a crowded public square. The first, consists of images that have been recycled and transformed into an abstract narrative that shows the movements and dynamics of the fighting. The second set perceptibly illustrates some details and the people who watched and vibrated with the successive fighting.
