“La Lucha” is born from the desire to collaborate with Mexican Top Fashion Stylist: Ivan Nuza, featuring the Designers Manuel Diaz, Gianfranco Reni, Angela Reyna. We decided to explore the relations between the body and their fashion collection, inspired by Gothic Bondage.     I had come across an old Boxing Gym in a really rough area of Mexico City and fell in love with its mad, eclectic, and random aesthetic. I felt it would work perfectly in contrast to the slick dark Bondage Fashion from our 3 designers. We worked with one of the most famous Mexican model Liliana Camba as well as Dutch twins River and Lois Hoeber, as well as Olga Kotova. I joined forces with one of Mexico best DOP Rodrigo “Cocol” Marina AMC, as well as Mel Gibson’s son Christian Gibson, who is one of the best stedicam Operator I had the pleasure to work with.
