Todd Antony is also a finalist in two categories this year in the AOP Awards. Congratulations for getting “Flying Cholitas” into the Lifestyle Series category, and also for getting another image into the Lifestyle Single category.
Bolivia’s Flying Cholitas are a group of female wrestlers who wear traditional dress while engaging in their sport. The Cholitas first began wrestling in the early 2000s, partly for recreation and partly as a way for women who had suffered domestic abuse to draw strength.
The single image is of Hanna with Gukka her racing reindeer – part of an ongoing series shot in Finnish Lapland.
