Behind the Lens

"Here's a photo I'm particularly fond of at the moment. Recently, I've got stuck back into an old personal project I briefly touched upon about five years ago.

"Amateur boxing in Ireland is huge and the people involved are as interesting as the sport, particularly when shot in their own environments.

"I spent a few days at Donore Boxing Club in the Liberties and met some wonderful people. Their commitment to the kids within the community is inspirational.

"I was returning to my car to get some lighting when I noticed these kids playing on the street corner just outside the club. The flats in the background were the perfect backdrop and, when I asked them to pose, they naturally assumed a boxing stance."
