Downtown in El Alto, Bolivia. Look at that sky..

Bolivia’s cholitas luchadoras first began practicing their craft in the early 2000’s when a group of women in El Alto created a group of luchadoras inspired by Mexico’s lucha libre style of wrestling. This group was partly for recreation and entertainment, but also as a way for women who had suffered domestic abuse to take out their frustration and stress. And they haven’t looked back from there, headlining events and even taking on their male counterparts in the ring . . . . .

Huayna Potosí is a mountain in Bolivia, located near El Alto and about 25 km north of La Paz in the Cordillera Real. Huayna Potosí is the closest high mountain to La Paz. Surrounded by high mountains, it is roughly 15 miles due north of the city, which makes this mountain the most popular climb in Bolivia. (Wikipedia) - - - - - - - - - -

Bolivia, país de alpacas, llamas y vicuñas. País de teleféricos, nevados y montañas. País de diversidad cultural, de ecosistemas y de danzas. País con comida deliciosa. País con una arquitectura única y fascinante. País orgulloso de sus indigenas y sus cholitas. País de nevados y de colores. País de mis amores, siempre te llevo en el corazón ❤️💛💚 feliz día de la independencia mi

The arcana of Freddy Mamani Silvestre’s New Andean Architecture is one celebrating culture, color and personality in and of the city of El Alto, Bolivia through buildings based on ancient local architecture and craft. Located outside of the capital La Paz, about 13,000 feet (4,000 meters) above sea level, El Alto is one of the youngest cities in Bolivia but already its second most populous, and the home to this new architectural style unique to the region, shot here by Tatewaki Nio (@tatewaki_nio). "My architecture incorporates lines and motifs from a very ancient architecture, from the imperial capital of Tiwanaku," said largely self-taught Mamani, who visited the archeological site during high school. "I wanted to rescue these lines and motifs from Tiwanaku, and imbue contemporary architecture with these ancient forms. All of these elements from Tiwanaku can be translated into symmetrical forms in contemporary architecture. This architecture has its own language, its own culture, its own identity, and translates these ancient ideas into the contemporary city." 🏔🏔🏔

Mamani Mamani, Bolivya’nin en taninmis ve en siradisi ressami, sanatcisi. El Alto sehrinin tozlu sokaklarinda 7 binadan olusan bir yerlesim yerinde binalari kendi tarziyla boyayarak hem topluma hem de sanat dunyasina tarifsiz guzellikte bir eser birakmis. Bugune kadar gordugum en etkileyici graffittiler. Gitmesi, bulmasi kolay degil ama herseye degecek gorsel bir guzellik. Dunyada bu tur sanatcilarin cogalmasi dilegiyle... - Mamani Mamani is one of the best known and extraordinary painters, artists. He has left the inexpressible work to the art world at the dusty streets of El Alto by painting 7 building with his style. The most attractive graffitties I’ve seen so far. It’s not easy to go and to find but this visual beauty deserves all nice words. Hoping that there will be a lot of artists like him in the world.../


#repost from @toddantonyphoto Continuing my project on the Cholitas of Bolivia, we head in a slightly different direction after spending a few days in El Alto with a unique group of female wrestlers known as the ’Flying Cholitas’ . Following many years of ethnic oppression since the Spanish colonised the region, the Cholitas are breaking into new realms. Rather than confining themselves to vending fruit on the roadside, they are working as lawyers, doctors, and even professional wrestlers. Cholitas have long had a history of activism, leading several successful political movements over the decades. When they have an issue with the state, be it healthcare, schooling, or security, they mobilise and demonstrate. Their fight in the ring becomes a dramatisation of that day to day struggle, as they successfully strive ahead in what is an otherwise male dominated sport. Much like their climbing compatriots in my project, they do all this while still adorned in their traditional Aymara dress. . Bolivia’s cholitas luchadoras first began practicing their craft in the early 2000’s when a group of women in El Alto created a group of luchadoras inspired by Mexico’s lucha libre style of wrestling. This group was partly for recreation and entertainment, but also as a way for women who had suffered domestic abuse to take out their frustration and stress.
