Photo Stories – Wrestlers, Synchronised Swimming and Gay Pride

I’m back and refreshed. To celebrate another Bank Holiday, here are some images from a few photo series that I have been contacted about. Thanks to the internet, I come across work that I may never normally see. There’s a sporty focus in today’s post with portraits of the many faces of wrestling by Daniel Patrick Lilley, synchronised swimming in London in the run up to the 2012 Olympics by Nicola Tree and Gay Pride in Brighton by Matthew Coleman. See over for more…



These images of synchronised swimming are from the Taking Part project and are part of a commission to shoot 48 local sports groups and clubs in the run up to the Olympics for a London council. Thirteen other photographers are involved, see Image17 for more. The work will tour the Borough and other locations in London next year.
