The Boxer, 2019


This series was created with Islington Boxing Club over a period of 6 months. During this time I discovered fragmented and juxtaposed moments of softness and support between brutal fighting and sparring. These moments appeared to be the foundation of the success of a boxer and are of great importance in any winning performance in the ring. Whilst lenses in photography are most commonly fixated on violence in the ring, The Boxer aims to provide an alternative perspective on the sport and more widely on masculinity.
