Photo shot last summer by Roman Hatori in Cuernavaca, Mexico
I love his work :)
Recently someone told me they thought this photo was insulting to female beauty because it was fetishistic and demeaning. I never thought of it in that way at all. During my visit in Mexico City I happened to get to go to a lucha libre match and received a wrestling mask. I thought it’d be a cool thing to shoot in and suggested it to the photographer during our shoot.
As an aside—the lucha libre is one of the strangest things I’ve ever seen. I laughed, I cried, I was amazed (“is that a ..dwarf in a parrot costume being body slammed and french kissed by a gay wrestler??…WHY??)
