For years, acclaimed photographer Lourdes Grobet has studied Lucha Libre, the spectacular art of Mexican wrestling that has evolved from a sport to a kind of modern mythology, complete with its very own masked heroes and monsters that have spawned endless comic books and films charting their legendary exploits... This interesting world is brought to life through an exhibition of sixteen photographs.
