Richard Ehrlich: Lucha Libre

“According to Richard Ehrlich, “My continued interest in the culture of Lucha Libre stems from my close personal association with Jose Sulaiman, Chair of the World Boxing Council, who has known many of the luchadores for more than thirty years. He was instrumental in organizing the photo shoot in Mexico City. The purpose was to attempt to capture photographically the emotion and character of the fighters. The luchadores are Latin American icons and are extremely popular and important cultural figures. They were exceedingly cooperative with this project.” – http://www.artslant.com
