American Fight Clubs
Photographer Jim Lommasson shares the story of the 10 years he spent traveling to boxing gyms across the country, including such local boxing landmarks as the famous Blue Horizon and the Front Street Gym. Taken together, the photographs in this exhibit form a portrait of boxing gyms in all their glorious grunge and a tribute to the fighters and trainers whose dreams of glory are forged in sweat, sacrifice, and the will to survive.

Jim Lommasson is a photographer based in Portland, Oregon. He and writer Katherine Dunn were awarded the 2004 Dorothea Lange-Paul Taylor Prize by The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University for their collaboration on this book. Recently, he has been photographing and interviewing returning Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans. "Recovery Mission" a photo essay featuring their stories appears in the September issue of Portland Monthly Magazine.  The complete work will be exhibited at the new American Art Union this fall.

The exhibit will be on display during the festival and throughout November and December.
