Roughly speaking, Carol Hübner-Venezia shows in her works the fast passing moments of everyday life. For example, since the early 90s Carol Huebner-Venezia has been photographing in Gleason’s Gym (New York). In the oldest and most famous boxing stable in the world, heavyweights such as Muhammed Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Jake la Motta and Mike Tyson once trained. But Carol Huebner-Venezia shows neither prominent boxing stars nor spectacular wrestling matches. 
Instead, her large-format works reflect the atmosphere of the milieu, they provide insight into training situations and tell of the athletes’ self-image.

In her beach series, for example, her photos show various beaches. In this series, the works depict everyday life on the beach in New Jersey. In front of us, infinite sand expanses open up, interwoven with traces and giving us a sense of loneliness.
