Collection: Wrestling

Documentary style images taken at the monthly wrestling events held by wXw Academy in Essen. “Scouting the Next Generation” is a platform for new talents to show their skills and allows them to perform in front of a live audience. I created the zine Diamonds in the Rough with images from this – still ongoing – project.
