Portraiture   >   Carney's Community

When South London youth worker George Turner met England boxing coach Mick Carney MBE back in 2004, the pair quickly realised the potential for using boxing to help get disadvantaged young people off the street and away from a life of crime. Sadly Mick passed away in 2011 however his legacy lives on in the form of Carney's Community, a new centre set up by George and one of Mick's head boxing coaches, Mark Reigate. The pair, along with Criminology graduate, Arthur Clarke, now run regular training sessions out of their new boxing gym near Battersea Park. George invited me down to meet the family and get some portraiture photographs to line the walls of their new space.
