Boxing Kids in Cape Town

04_sandrobaebler_portrait_boxing-624x437

It`s a shipping container placed behind a shopping centre in Cape Town’s township “Philippi”, the kids come after school to train and learn how to box – for free.

They use this facility as there is really not a lot to do in the area, this facility keeps the children off the streets and they learn how use their time and energy in a positive way. They also learn about rules, boundries, discipline, exchange and respect.

“I worked with a broncolor Move 1200 L and 2 Octaboxes of 150 cm and 75 cm with light grid. I took a white cardbox as reflector and a black fabric for the background”, says photographer Sandro Bäbler. “I was happy to have the Move with me, as there was no mains supply in the Boxing Club and the battery pack was the best choice I could bring with me.

The Coach of the Club is working for free and he was very touched by the fact, that someone was interested in his work with the kids and even was found of making a real photo project of it. One week after the shooting we brought the prints to the Club and we offered for every kid a school bag.

It was a great pleasure for me to combine this project with a good human action. The happiness was huge and the kids were so proud about the prints hanging in the club and very grateful for the new school bags.
