When they're after action, tension, and a bit of bloodshed, photographers have always known where to go--the boxing ring. Take a look at some knock-out vintage photos in and out of the ringside.
The sporting world has long been one of man’s favorite sources of action-packed photographs. In this genre, photos should not only show tension and activity, but also tell interesting stories in and out of the playing field. Boxing is perhaps among the favorites of sports photographers of all ages, levels, and eras—when there’s force, tactics, and blood involved, there must definitely be an interesting moment or two waiting to be photographed.
While the popular combat sport traces its roots in the ancient times, modern boxing—with rules to protect fighters—emerged around the 1740’s. Amendments to the rules eventually followed in the 1800’s. Soon, there were boxing tournaments here and there, and photographers that time, never wanting to miss all the action, began taking interest in documenting the bloody bouts.
Ladies and gents, it’s now time for us to take a look at some vintage photos in and out of the boxing ring. Are you ready to rumble?
Boxing may be predominantly a man’s world, but who says ladies can’t have their own boxing fun?
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

Not long after Joseph Petzval's move to Vienna in 1837, he joined the race to create a faster camera lens. He succeeded in 1840 with what became known as the Petzval Lens. Let's take a step back and look more closely at the development of this ground-breaking lens.
