BOXERS + BALLERINAS
PHOTOGRAPHS BY JOHN GOODMAN
APRIL 3 – MAY 31, 2014

Boxers + Ballerinas presents photographs from John Goodman’s acclaimed monograph The Times Square Gym (Introduction by Pete Hamill, Evan Publishing, 1997) which capture the raw beauty of boxers in motion and the character of the now defunct legendary gym itself which closed in 1993 to make way for the Times Square Redevelopment project. Goodman’s pictures of fighters are paired with his images of the dancers of the Boston Ballet as they prepare for performance that are both corporeal and otherworldly. Together these two bodies of work reveal the toughness and vulnerability of these men and women who share a common endurance, heart, and burning passion to excel at what they do.
