The Shed - - News -

Live, Train, Fight like Thai show­cases Leon Rose’s 10-year doc­u­men­ta­tion of the sport of Muay Thai in New Zealand. The ex­hi­bi­tion was re­cently shown at Whites­pace Gallery dur­ing the Auck­land Fes­ti­val of Pho­tog­ra­phy, and Rose launched his first pub­lished book dur­ing the open­ing of the ex­hi­bi­tion on May 29.

With the full ti­tle of Live, Train, Fight like Thai — A New Zealand Per­spec­tive, it doc­u­ments the im­ages that Rose cap­tured dur­ing his many hours at gyms and fight nights in the New Zealand Muay Thai com­mu­nity.

Rose used the on­line-fundrais­ing plat­form of Pledge me to raise the money re­quired to see the book through to fruition. He met his tar­get of $10,000 through the fundraiser, and worked with pub­lisher PQ Blackwell to cre­ate the book.

Live, Train, Fight like Thai — A New Zealand Per­spec­tive can be pur­chased from Rose’s web­site, leon­rose.co.nz. Rose will also be a speaker at the up­com­ing In­fo­cus 2015 con­fer­ence.
