Item description for Charles Freger: Rikishi by Charles Freger Chihiro Minato...

From the photographer who brought you wrestlers, now: sumo wrestlers. Charles Fr ger has supersized his life's work with this large book of larger-format portraits of...substantially larger subjects. And perhaps a larger topic: Sumo wrestling, which dates from the Heian Period, some 1300 years ago, is not just physical combat but also a nexus of religion, history, leisure and athletics. While it has come far from its roots as an offering to the gods, and is known best in Japan as a professional sport, these amateurs display a reverence and a piercing gaze that marks them as preparing for a meditative struggle, a battle of wills and of eye contact as well as body contact. But first, the battle is to get big enough--some of the youngest wrestlers here have hundreds of pounds to go.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!
