Amy Grubb Photography


An obsession with body image dominates today’s society, and it is not purely a female preoccupation. Here I have photographed male bodybuilders, who belong to a gym where taking dietary supplements, including weight training drugs and steroids is common practice. Concentrating on their faces during the strain of lifting weights, I have purposefully excluded their bodies and the weights themselves. Taking influence from the ‘New Topographic Generation’, I am photographing in this generic way to place emphasis on the study of the subjects’ faces and identities.
