If you have ever been to running or sporting events, you know that there are so many colors involved. As I started to shoot this project, it became clear to me that there were frames that just wouldn’t work in color. Neon can be visually overwhelming and really distract the viewer from the subject in the frame. Shooting in black and white gave me the freedom to focus more on form and shapes and not worry about a neon jacket or jersey completely ruining an image.

Perspective | Meet the female pro wrestlers of Mexico

Photographer Diana Bagnoli takes us into the world of Mexican wrestling.

Lucha libre is Mexico’s version of what we in the United States refer to as pro wrestling. Its dates to 1863, when a Mexican wrestler named Enrique Ugartechea developed a form of “freestyle” wrestling that was based on Greco-Roman wrestling. Lucha libre began to soar in popularity in Mexico after two Italian businessmen started promoting fights in the early 1900s. It has since become popular around the globe. The sport is mostly performed by men, called “luchadores,” festooned in colorful outfits and masks. But women also take part in the sport, and they are called “luchadoras.” Fascinated by the sport, and particularly with the female participants, Italian photographer Diana Bagnoli traveled to Mexico.

Perspective | Homegrown rodeos make it ‘Cowboy Christmas’ in the Rocky Mountain summertime

From Carbondale to Snowmass, photographer Matt McClain visited small-town rodeos in Colorado and documented a piece of the West.

It’s the end of July in a place known as “The Ultimate Rocky Mountain Hideout,” the tiny town of Carbondale, Colo., tucked beneath the soaring mountains just north of Aspen. Winter sports and the cold snows are absent. Summer around here is considered “Cowboy Christmas,” when the landscape is dotted with homegrown rodeos that have cowboys and crowds wandering from one small town to another.

Capturing Camaraderie in a Minor League Baseball Team

Fred Conrad, a former staff photographer for The New York Times, has been documenting the Rockland Boulders baseball team’s friendship with each other and love for their sport.

In a bygone era, sports photographers didn’t have the benefit of Telephoto lenses, digital cameras or wireless transmission. But their technological limitations had under-appreciated benefits. “Photographers had to get really close to the ballplayers,” said Fred Conrad, a former staff photographer for The New York Times. “So there’s this wonderfully personal and intimate feeling from the photographs.”

The Grisly Spectacle of Lucha Libre Extrema

Photos from the underground Mexican wrestling scene

assignment for a Mexican magazine, photographer Annick Donkers found herself angling for an invitation to a particular car wash outside of Mexico City. On some nights, this car wash transforms into a venue for the hardcore wrestling style called Lucha Libre Extrema. Illegal in the city for its brutality — Annick told me there are “basically no rules” — it’s difficult for journalists and outsiders to get invited. Once inside, she had to protect her camera for fear that it might get shattered when she approached for close shots of the wrestlers. Intrigued by the appeal this extreme sport holds for spectators, which include women and children, Annick says her work aims to observe but not judge. For Polarr, we spoke about the project.

The photographer Carolyn Drake set out for the U.S.-Mexico border just after Donald Trump won the Presidency. On the stump, he’d talked obsessively about building a wall—“big, fat, beautiful”—and Drake was struck, but not surprised, by its popular reception. “A lot of people in the U.S. were imagining that idea for a long time,” she told me recently. “There are people in this country who want to protect themselves from what they perceive as the dangers of Mexico and Mexicans, and I wanted to see the place that felt like it needed protection.” For two weeks, she drove from California to El Paso, taking pictures of the people, scenes, and landscapes she saw along the way. She made another trip just after the Inauguration, this time starting in El Paso and driving east, across Texas. “I felt I could see America better from a little north of the border,” she said.
