This series is a selection from a larger body of work titled "Coach". Paul Allen is an Army veteran, family man, Boxing club owner and the coach of Olympic hopeful Amanda Coulson, a female boxer from Hartlepool in the North East of England. With the build up to the 2012 Olympic Games, the focus is on the athletes who will represent our country, yet the people who have trained these athletes are often overlooked. With this series of photographs I hope to give an honest representation of Paul, a man who has made a positive contribution to society both in his time spent in the forces and in the work he does for his community as a boxing coach.
