Photographer Marc Ohrem-Leclef explains it best himself:
"Cowboys and Indians" introduces us to two insular, male-dominated communities.
The first is a group of “jackaroos” (the term for young cowboys in Australia), in a very remote area of northern Queensland that has neither FM radio nor cell phone reception or any sizable village within a vicinity of over 100 miles.
The other is a group of wrestling students in their sacred and thus somewhat ‘off-limits’ training grounds -- part clay/dirt arena, part temple to the Hindu-god Hanuman — in a congested city in northern India.
Here they follow the thousand-year-old practice of kushti, a style of wrestling that embraces Hindu spiritual tradition.
