  • This image of two boxers was taken by Sander for his project 'Man of the 20th Century'. It is typical of much of the series in the pose of the figures, shown in full length, hands by their sides, facing and acknowledging the camera. The men are posed against a wall, which gives the image an unstaged quality. This is also emphasised in the sharp focus of the image and the unromantic posing of the men. Sander often photographed people in pairs, which makes us compare the men physically and speculate on the differences in their character.
