Abstract

Matthew Murray Photographs and interviews Wrestlers at Holyhead Leisure Centre, Handsworth, Birmingham for a personal Project. This series first appeared in i-D magazine in the 'eye section'. The series also appears online at the Birmingham Images, Library of Birmingham site - where there are over 10,000 images depicting Birmingham's fascinating heritage, culture and personalities. This series was also exhibited at Hug Gallery, Amsterdam. Matthew’s images are universal in their insight and unintentionally have a tendency to make the viewer smile, by essentially capturing in colour the bizarre in everyday society. Murray captures a fundamental sense of enjoyment and has a unique ability to somehow summarize humour simply within a single moment. Without being derogatory to his subject, he shows neither, cynicism or sarcasm, but an instinctive pureness of fun.
