In the Ring with Rosa

In the Ring with Rosa

A collaboration with David Balluff
Web-based photo novella
Date: 1995 - 1997

Description: Created as an exploration of (at the time) new digital media, this work was created using photographs of Nao as Rosa which were then composited into shots of a miniature wrestling ring where she interacted with toy figurines.

The story follows Rosa, an angry but trusting woman who discovers her love for lucha libre style fighting in a bar. Over time, she ascends to the pinnacle of the wrestling world, only to have success snatched from her.
