Bulger Gallery Press is pleased to present, World’s Greatest, a publication that features 60 photographs by Pete Doherty and essays by Stephen Brunt, Jim Christy and Larry Fink.

Doherty is a self-taught photographer and graduate of the Ontario College of Art, who, for many years, left behind the world of art to become a boxer. After retiring from his amateur career, Doherty returned to the ring with his camera in hand. His photographs primarily document the boxing world in Ontario and New York State, but are representative of professional and amateur boxing throughout North America. The images not only focus on the sport of boxing, but also on the people and personalities that populate that world. His photographs document the emotions and physical challenges of training, fighting, and the win or loss. They also address the politics that make up both amateur and professional fighting.

Doherty has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions. His work can be found at the Portrait Gallery of Canada—Library and Archives Canada, Ottawa, and Wedge Curatorial Projects, Toronto, as well as in many private collections. He currently lives, trains, and photographs in Toronto.

A selection of the photographs from World’s Greatest will be exhibited in Gallery Two at the Stephen Bulger Gallery from May 30 to June 15.
