Absolutely fantastic photographic series of Senegalese wrestlers photographed by award winning photographer Denis Rouvre. Senegalese wrestling, or laamb is a mixture of bare-fist boxing and conventional wrestling. The fighters are coated with potions to extract evil and wear tallismans in the hope for good luck. Traditionally, laamb was a sign of a young man’s talent and strength in order to attract a wife. via oitzarisme.ro and inspiredm.com
