Photographer's Note

Black and White Series – 7

PINK IS FOR BOYS

I spotted this old POLYSTYRENE PUGILIST in the window of a boxing shop in Nottingham. I thought “ this is the perfect picture just SEARCHING FOR A TITLE”. I was impressed by the SCAR across his lip – that must have been some punch! So I did my very best to create a black and white image that was as punchy as I could manage, in the circumstances, to honour his obvious courage and persistence in the business. A real TITLE FIGHTER!

The most amazing thing about this old RING MASTER though was that all his gear was an intense GIRLY PINK! Not that I’m one to question his, or worry about my own, masculinity because of a shade but hey I don’t think I would feel comfortable being someone’s SPARRING PARTNER in that colour!

Things are not just that Black and White.
