"With Torero, Ruven Afanador juxtaposes the incredible beauty of young bullfighters and old-world Latin traditions with a couture-inspired vision of the opulent costumes and the ritualistic elements of the matador culture, and narcissism, an integral aspect of fashion photography. Afanador opens the door to the famously closed society of bullfighters, offering his elegant, private view of the young matadors raised in a centuries-old Latin tradition, capturing their balletic beauty, and their distinctly erotic aura. Through these iconic portraits, Afanador also gorgeously documents the sumptuous and richly-crafted costumes and the timeless symbols of the torero culture." Hard to find bullfighters pictorial, in dust jacket.; Photographs; 192 pages.
