A Fighter's Portrait

A portrait of a Muay Thai kick boxer just moments before a big fight in Bangkok's famed Rajadamnern Stadium. Before entering the ring, he wears the mongkon, a sacred headband blessed by Buddhist monks. The sport of Muay Thai is dangerous but can propel Thai youth out of poverty.
