In my photographic portrait series, "Vulnerable Warriors," I sought to capture the essence of young Senegalese amateur wrestlers, a group of ambitious and determined men who possess an unwavering spirit of resilience. Set against the backdrop of the breathtaking natural landscapes of their village, this series is a visual celebration of the interplay between human vulnerability and the beauty of nature.

Wrestling in Senegal holds immense cultural significance, embodying not only physical strength but also a profound sense of identity and community. The wrestlers dedicate themselves to rigorous training and face numerous challenges, both within and outside the arena. Inspired by their unwavering determination, I aimed to showcase a different side of these young warriors—an intimate portrayal that reveals their vulnerability, sensitivity, and connection to the world around them.

By juxtaposing the strength and physicality of the wrestlers with the delicate beauty of nature, I aimed to challenge preconceived notions of masculinity and strength. The vulnerability displayed in their eyes and body language humanizes them, reminding viewers that beneath the muscles and fierce demeanor lies a shared humanity.

The choice to photograph the wrestlers in the natural environment of their village was deliberate. The village, with its lush landscapes and untamed beauty, serves as a metaphor for the resilience of both the wrestlers and their surrounding community. Nature's unyielding presence and nurturing spirit mirror the wrestlers' tenacity and their deep-rooted connection to the land that shapes their identity.

Through my lens, I hope to convey a deeper understanding of these young Senegalese wrestlers, beyond the surface-level portrayal often associated with their sport. I invite viewers to reflect on the complexity of human experience and challenge their preconceived notions of strength, vulnerability, and beauty.

Ultimately, "Vulnerable Warriors" is an exploration of the harmonious coexistence between humanity and nature. It is a tribute to the profound beauty that arises when strength and vulnerability intersect, and a celebration of the enduring spirit that binds us all.
