Micheal Watson delivers something amazing with “The Wrestler”

No comments


Some people live the life they have to, working a dead end 9-5 job, going home to a one bedroom apartment, making a tv dinner, and passing out before 11pm.  Micheal Watson is the opposite.  His life for the past five years has involved chair shots, suicide planchas and of course ARMBARS.


Micheal Watson has been a wrestling film photographer for five years, when three years ago it dawned on him.  Wrestlers make amazing subjects.  He created his project, “The Wrestler”, a photo book of 130 different indy wrestlers (some of which are now hot commodities in the wrestling world.) All taken with a Polaroid camera (and allowed to process, not shaken, thank you outkast.)  You can see previews on his Instagram: brainbuster_

I gave the option, in my story, between two previews from my new book 'The Wrestlers' You picked 'The Bruiserweight' Pete Dunne! Fun story about this portrait, I was basically sitting in a urinal to take this backstage at PROGRESS Orlando, because it was the bathroom was the best wall I could find to take the photo. There's still 17 days left in my funding period on Kickstarter (link in bio)! Can't wait to get my hands on these, if everything goes according to plan I should have copies with me in New Orleans for mania weekend this year! . . . @thisis_progress @petedunneyxb @polaroidoriginals #polaroid #instantfilm #filmphotographic @filmphotographic #polaroidoriginals #impossibleproject #filmisnotdead #blackandwhiteisworththefight
