My series focuses on the sport of wheelchair bodybuilding in the USA. The men compete in the wheelchair class, but the competitions have all classes of traditional bodybuilding from lightweight to heavyweight. As a photographer, I attended many of these competitions throughout the USA.
Most depictions of bodybuilding portray the participants in an extreme manner. Intrigued by the sport as a way to represent strength where you might otherwise see a weakness, I wanted my images to be subtle – to make the men more accessible as a way of connecting the viewer to their stories.
