Boxing A photography project by Chris Garvi

“Boxing” is one of the first projects I undertook as “self imposed assignment” back when I was 20 or 21, I can’t remember. It seems ages ago. For this project I spent 8 months exploring and documenting the life of a tiny boxing club in a small town of the south of France.

There are no superheroes in this world and I believe each one of us has got a fundamental role to play while being down here – That’s the reason why I’m so very much interested and curious about people, anonymous people…”
