The sports and action photographer RAY DEMSKI c/o UPFRONT filmed "Bukom" with Amsterdam Worldwide, a film showing a boxing community in Bukom, a suburb of Accra in Ghana that gave the world some of its best boxers. A photo project preceeded the film, during which the photographer tapped into a new world...Ray filmed, directed, and photographed for the project.
"I traveled to Ghana, and wanted to do a sport and action story there. I came back with something much deeper—the story of a boxing community that has produced and will continue to produce some of the world's best athletes. I only hope that this project can give something back to the community and the people in it. They welcomed me into their world and allowed me to view their work through a truly unique perspective. I hope that the resulting pictures of these athletes will really bring them the attention they deserve. More information about the photo project and the whole interview can be found at NIKON.
