British photographer Matthew Murray's 2014 "Stripper" series stems from a chance encounter, he explained recently in Port Magazine. He happened to catch the UK Pleasure Boys practicing their dance moves and seized the opportunity to take their individual portraits. By masking their physiques through a dark filter, Murray seemingly plays with the definition of their work—to maintain a seductive quality while baring it all. This also forces the viewer to stop for an in-depth stare to fully examine the details, only exacerbating the awkwardness the portraits innately project. "Stripper" was on view through Amsterdam's own Gallery Vassie. Matthew Murray's "Stripper" photos courtesy of the artist
