Fighting For a Pittance

The girl in this image is 6 years old. She is under a lot of pressure: she has to win in order to pay out her parents' bet on her. Although money bets are illegal all over Thailand, hardly anyone pays attention.

Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand. It is common for children, boys and girls, to start boxing from the age of 6 or 7. Most of these athletes come from poor families. They hope that boxing will be their first step for escaping poverty. Thus, their parents push them into professional training from a very early age.

Catching the Rain

Back in 2012, Cuba was the very first place where I took pictures of people. I had an image in my head of a fisherman and his net before even buying my ticket to Cuba, but during my 33 days on the island I never had the chance to see one.

On my last day, I decided to take a short walk before going to the airport. Suddenly it started to rain very hard and amidst the downpour, I saw a fisherman throwing his net to the sea.

The Hand

The little boy Kalle was gathering seaweed in the bathing facility in the harbor of Copenhagen. I had just met the little guy, when he suddenly bent down, leaving only his hand in sight. Something about it immediately interested me. The scene changed completely in the frame, creating an atmosphere of something foreboding and surreal.

Seconds later the scene transformed back to normality, as Kalle's smiling face reappeared, and his friends shouted in delight over the fresh handful of trailing seaweed in Kalle's other hand.

Welcome To Behind the Frame!

Behind the Frame is a new platform designed to connect photography-lovers (most of us with a smartphone today!) with the work of true photographic talents. We want to make highly curated, museum-quality photographs available to a global audience at both an affordable price and in just a few clicks. 

We are launching in January with our first limited-edition sale. The theme, appropriate for the new year, will be "Always a Beginner."

See below for a preview of just a few of the dozens of photographs which will be on sale.

Lucky Milk

Kherou Ngor is a successful, young wrestler who lives on the beach near Dakar, Senegal. He trains himself every day and his body looks like the rubber suit from a superhero movie. But like all other wrestlers in Senegal, Ngor believes that physical strength is not enough on its own…

Our award-winning photographers (in this case, World Press Photo 2016) are offering their work in a limited-edition format available exclusively through our platform. Highest quality printing with the choice of hand-made frames—all at an affordable price!

 

Reaching for the Clouds

When there is sunlight during the day in Paris, one thing that you can generally count on is a spectacular sunset. Out of my window one evening in June, I saw an improbably beautiful cluster of clouds moving fast towards the west.

We have hand-picked these 20 artists and worked with them to produce each one of these beautifully produced photographs. Every image comes with a personal, in-depth story, told to us directly by the photographer, revealing something "behind the frame."
