English photographer and Chicago resident Thomas Chadwick has updated his wide ranging portfolio with a piece he shot, directed and wrote about Chicago boxer Dimar “El Animal” Ortuz.
Documenting Dimar prepare for an upcoming fight was eye opening. What he goes through on a daily basis is grueling. He’s physically tough and mentally focused. At the same, time he surprised me with how warm and open he is. He’s an exceptional person. I really enjoyed my time with him.
I would like to thank the people that helped me bring this project to life. Nicholas Price, Curtis Schmidt, Nealle Dipaolo, Agnieszka Ray,a Mike Shimer, Tyler Lundberg, Erica Chadwick, and Joe Lombardo
