I visited this boxing gym to shoot an editorial for a magazine. In between shots the owner/trainer Jean Pierre would come to check my shots in the camera and he would tell me stories about the glory days of his gym. I could sense a feeling of both pride and sadness mixed together. A month later I came by to shoot this video. First he told me I should film some of the young boxers because he didn't want to be on camera. I insisted that the story I wanted to hear was his. Fortunately, he smiled and agreed.
