Kushti wrestling, New Delhi | Bas Uterwijk photography | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

After working for fourteen years as a 3D and CG artist on movies, tv and commercials, Bas Uterwijk has been employed as an Art-Director on the Playstation3 game “Killzone2″ for Sony Computer Entertainment for the last three years. He will be available for freelance photography work from March 2009 on. Of this project he says, ‘The ancient art of Kushti wrestling is still practiced in large parts of India and Pakistan. Most schools (akhara’s) are adapting to international wrestling competition rules by alternatively training on an indoor mat next to the traditional sand pit. The sand is mixed with mustard oil, milk or ghee and has a very historic and symbolic meaning to the fighters: it represents Mother India herself. Most wrestlers permanently live inside the akhara. They follow a strict vegetarian diet and extremely intense training schedule. These photos were taken within a period of one week in three akhara’s in New Delhi India in August 2009′.
