These images I shot several years ago but still continue to use them in my portfolio. I think it’s because of the raw emotion each boxer emits. They’re simple yet poignant. The rich black and whites give them that soulful feel I try to emulate in all my images. Most in this gym train for the love but some train with a hopeful optimism they will one day make it big. I hope they all do. These are the fighters of Brooklyn, New York.
