This work is a response to frustrations generated by the everyday flux and pace of life. It is underpinned by a desire for a return to a more elemental and secure existance. It uses the pretext of the world of amateur boxing to examine such ideas.
Investment of time and energy in a tradition like boxing can be explained through the desire to achieve stability in a rapidly changing world. It may also engender a yearning for self – regulation and a longng for autheticity.
These images were taken over a two – year period at St Saviour’s Boxing Club, Dorset St Dublin 2.
