TORONTO, May 22, 2013 /CNW/ - Bulger Gallery Press is pleased to
present, World's Greatest, a publication that features 60 photographs by Pete Doherty and writing
by Stephen Brunt, Jim Christy and Larry Fink.
Doherty (b. Ottawa, Canada, 1964) is a self-taught photographer and
graduate of the Ontario College of Art, who, for many years, left
behind the world of art to become a boxer. After retiring from his
amateur career, Doherty returned to the ring with his camera in hand.
His photographs primarily document the boxing world in Ontario and New
York State, but are representative of professional and amateur boxing
throughout North America. The images not only focus on the sport of
boxing, but also on the people and personalities that populate that
world. His photographs document the emotions and physical challenges of
training, fighting, and the win or loss. They also address the politics
that make up both amateur and professional fighting.
Doherty has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions. His
work can be found at the Portrait Gallery of Canada—Library and
Archives Canada, Ottawa, and Wedge Curatorial Projects, Toronto, as
well as in many private collections. He currently lives, trains, and
photographs in Toronto.
A selection of photographs from World's Greatest will be exhibited in Gallery Two at the Stephen Bulger Gallery from May
30 to June 15.
We would like to thank the Canada Council of the Arts for their
financial support of this project.
