On the Big Picture, winning entries from the 2011 World Press Photo contest. This series really is fantastic and I recommend scrolling through the whole lot: there’s a man carrying a shark in Mogadishu, a superpacked Bangladeshi train, Tom Daley looking like a spirit ascending from a watery grave, some ice-cold fashion beauties and MORE. Be warned that some of the images (including the overall winner) could make you uncomfortable.

This one, though, is just magical.

The Flying Cholitas, Bolivia: Lucha libre (Bolivian wrestling), is one of the most popular sports in the country. Women wrestlers are known as cholitas and have in the last ten years become popular in the sport. Photo by Daniele Tamagni, Italy
