Loved the last photo.

I found this story incredibly inspiring. The only thing that is missing is some kind of mechanism to help them get equipment they need through donation etc.

So much for all the drama that people go through buying all kinds of expensive and fancy equipment. This boxer showed the way – your own will to achieve things no matter what the circumstances. Way to go viaduct boxers!

I particularly like the shots of the ring from above, with the use of shadows and light – the shadow itself is part of the story, as it comes from the viaduct above.

Your writing adds a very personal human layer to the photos and brings the story to life in an empathetic way. In my opinion with how you presented it, the boxers become not just stock subjects for viewers to gawk at or pity, but real people who focus immensely on what they can do to better themselves with whatever tools available. It’s not about famous trainers or top-of-the-line gym equipment, it’s determined resourcefulness.

On your end note, you make a crucial point that I believe many photographers can lose sight of in the midst of flashy colors and expensive equipment. Your images lend credence to your subjects and it speaks strongly.

Thank you for sharing your experience and stories.

Cheers,
Brittany Hannah
