In Kinshasa city on the Congo River, wrestling doesn't usually take place inside a building. Instead, the hundreds of wrestlers who live in the city wait until evening - when they've finished with their daytime occupations - don fantastical costumes, and head out in a motorized parade, drawing their audiences along with them to the backyards and back streets where their matches take place.

Photographer Colin Delfosse shot these powerful pictures of some of the city's Congolese wrestlers in full costume.
