Exquisite Mayhem ; the spectacular and erotic world of Wrestling (édition trilingue français/anglais/allemand)

À propos

Through blood, sweat, tears, and writhing, bikini-clad bodies, this book compiles the best images of Theo Ehret, an unsung giant of sports photography. From the mid-1960s through the early 1980s, Ehret chronicled the matches at the Grand Olympic Auditorium in L.A., as well as the erotic sub-genre of «apartment wrestling.» Through the weigh-ins, the injuries, the backstage brawls, and the captivated crowds, Ehret's images capture all the action and the atmosphere of the Grand Olympic Auditorium, where the likes of Andre the Giant, Killer Kowalski, The Sheik, Gordman and Goliath, and Jesse «The Body» all punched their way to stardom. Alongside the Grand Olympic shots are the dramatic apartment wrestling images, a male fantasy phenomenon of bare breasts and buttocks, long, strong limbs and staged passions.

An interview with Ehret adds his personal commentary to both sides of the wrestling scene, the legends he met along the way, and the interplay of fantasy, reality, and photography.
