'60, Seconds Out'
'60, second out' is an on-going documentary project examining the semiotic structures of a boxing club as environment and of boxing as practice involving the body. Focusing on details such as sweat, fibres and pores, this photographic series aims to convey an intimate and sensory experience of boxing. The images, deliberately generated ‘in-between’ rounds lasting exactly 60 seconds, record the unique effects of boxing training on the individual as a suspension of time. From close-up portraits to contextualising environmental shots, ‘60, Seconds Out’ intends to offer a visual access into the Language of a boxing club. I consider this project as being in collaboration with the members of the Kelvin Amateur Boxing Club in Govanhill, Glasgow, whom kindly welcomed me.
