Lucha Libre: Fate or Destiny
In this documentary photography project, Figueroa captures the many masked faces of lucha libre wrestlers inside and outside of the ring in Mexico City.
Like the subjects he captures, Figueroa sometimes needs to jump into the ring, pushing himself over his own physical limits to obtain and capture his images. In return, the wrestlers meet him with a measure of worth and respect.
“Que viva la Lucha Libre” – long live and cheers to lucha libre!
