The James Abbot Wrestling Project took place in just a matter of minutes. He arrived at a wrestling event and was given 15 minutes to shoot 16 wrestlers. Given the short time frame, the candid results are vivid and undeniably gruff. The rough heavyweights glare into the camera, flex their guns and flash their intimidating props against the black background.

Although macho men are rarely the focus of photoshoots, the James Abbot Wrestling Project presents them in a stark and sincere light.
