I’ve said it before, I’m lucky I get to spend time with so many people in the harm reduction community, I’m lucky I’m trusted to take photos of people and get the chance to show something about them to the wider world. But when someone you are staying with says “I want you to take some photos later, I have a lucha mask” then things can get … weird.
The conversation continued… embellishments where added “obviously you have to be in the bath”, texts were sent “do you have a onesie?”, “No, will hot-pants and a tube top do?”.
The result is Rey Picante. (The Spicy King)*
People, when you get the chance, spend time with your friends, talk about weird concepts… and if possible photograph the results.
If you are interested in exhibiting these images (and who wouldn't be interested!) please get in touch.
*The true culture of lucha libre is sacred and they never reveal beneath the mask.
