YOU THE BOXER by Michael Wynne
Jab, hook, upper cut. Learning to fight. The distraction and the incentive of a beautiful boxing coach. Fantasies of great victories, the challenge to stay focused, moves learnt to gain confidence in the world.
A short piece remembering my first boxing lessons, alongside 15 full-colour photographs. The images capture the physical closeness of the boxing match, the eroticism of contact sports; the size of the photobook is intimate enough to hold in the palm of the hand.

YOU THE BOXER is the second photobook in the One-a-Month challenge I've set myself, starting 1st October 2016. The first of every month, until the 1st of September 2017, I will launch a new photobook. The project marks the return to my love of photography.
