Fans Bring the Weapons

Here are photographs from this summer's King of the Death Matches tournament. During the tournament the promotion holds "fans bring the weapons" matches. These are portraits of fans with their home made weapons, which usually consist of flourescent light tubes duct taped to bats, thumbtacks glued to anything they can find, and barbed wire wrapped around everything else.



Fans Bring Weapons

Here are a few demo shots from a new chapter of my work with pro wrestling. Along with portraits of deathmatch wrestlers after their matches, I have been photographing the home made weapons that fans bring to the matches for the wrestlers to use on each other.
