Viva Las Luchadores

Away from the high octane glitz and glamour of professional American wrestling, there is a world of highly popular if slightly less polished body-slamming entertainment across South America. The fiendishly talented photographer Nick Ballon’s Viva Las Luchadoras! celebrates Bolivian wrestling, with an extraordinary mix of pizazz and pathos. It has been on display at the Bolivian Embassy in London but has now moved to Mother in Shoreditch, where it can be viewed by appointment.
