Photographer Anthony Suau talks about the Leica sponsored project “Facing Change: Documenting America” and how his involvement in it gave him a better understanding of how people from all different walks of life are being affected by the various issues of today: immigration, education, the housing crisis, war, natural disasters, and the economic crisis. One story that really stood out to Suau, is about 26-year-old boxer, Delorean Gray. Through documenting the boxing, Suau was able to view Gray’s world and that of his family and friends in a more intimate way. It revealed to him the economic situation of many people in this country that is invisible or ignored by many others.
Here is the link to the video, “Fighting Back — Cleveland’s Inner City Boxing,” about Delorean Gray: http://facingchange.org/blog/2012/05/07/fighting-back-2/.
