Denis Rouvre - Lamb | Lutteurs du Sénégal

The photos of Denis Rouvre show the valiant bodies, the faces, tense, perpetually in the challenge, of these apprentice wrestlers from the suburbs of Dakar and elsewhere in Senegal. Bards of gray-gray, asparagus of a thick milk and mystical potions, they belong to one of the seventy-seven stables of the country and practice each day this sport unique in the world, subtle mixture of traditional wrestling and boxing with bare fist. To become, one day, champions and be equal to the gods.
