“Wrestling is ballet with violence.” - Jesse Ventura
I've never been to a wrestling match before, but I was pretty stoked when I got a chance to get some shots of teenage wrestlers at Rockland Community College. These teen wrestlers are so in love with their craft - some were warming up doing a bit of stretching, while others were in their zone preparing for up-coming matches, practicing technical moves over and over and over again. Here are a few shots of them who I thought were pretty stylish, enjoy and let me know what you think.
Thanks to Kareem Black and Nick Brandreth for the extended invite for this event.
