Born in Mexico, 1940, photographer Lourdes Grobet has been a fan of pro wrestling since she was young, but her father did not allow her to visit the arena because of her gender. That didn't stop her to become the first prominent woman photographer in the wrestling sport.
Grobet inhibited her interest for the Lucha Libre wrestlers until she was old enough to be on her own. Worked as a painter first, Grobet then shifted to photography to capture portraits of the wrestlers. Her photographs of the luchadores also bring an important story in Mexico's cultural and social history. She also had a 35-year project with a theater group that interprets the indigenous traditions of pre-Hispanic Mexico, the Teatro Campesino e Indígena.
