SRF Top Shots: Christian Bobst – The Gris-gris Wrestlers of Senegal
For the SRF series “Top Shots”, we were able to accompany Zurich-based photographer Christian Bobst on a trip to Senegal. He takes pictures with the wrestlers in Senegal, with the “Lutteurs sénégalaises”. The Senegalese Lutte is very similar to the Swiss “schwingen”, includes a pinch of voodoo and big bets.
Christian Bobst won for this reportage the 2nd place at the World Press Photo Award 2016 in the category “Sport Stories”.
