Bad.Ass.Mexicans

A new book called SLAM looks at the stars of Mexican wrestling. Katinka    Herbert is a respected international portrait photographer whose work    regularly appears in major publications. Raised on a diet of Giant Haystacks    and Big Daddy, with a pinch of Evel Knievel, Katinka is described by her    publishers as being “obsessed with men in tights and masks and she has    spent the last eight years travelling backwards and forwards to Mexico    documenting the greatest legends of this extraordinary sport. Katinka was    given unrivalled access to these strangely hyper-masculine stars and the    result is SLAM, part art book, part fun book, and a total labour of love”.    Each of Katinka Herbert’s photographs places the subject in a fine art    context
