In a new series of photos, Copenhagen-based photographer Sissel Abel takes on a different approach while portraying boxer and personal trainer Zaidoon Farhan in his natural element.
Besides hard physical work, boxing has many facets to it, and one of the most important ones is the mental aspect and keeping a healthy balance between the two.
“Zaidoon is a thinker and one who needs to zone out in order to zone in. He boxes every day, which is extremely demanding on the body and the mind and is the main reason Zaidoon spends a lot of time self-reflecting and ‘soul searching’ through long walks on his own. And that is the exact expression I wanted to convey - the mental part.” says Sissel about the series.
