Bos Taurus. A visual anthropology of the worlds of the fighting bull (Hardcover)
A mixed bag of means of production, knowledge, imaginaries, traditions and rites, bullfighting festivities have been one of the most confusing, unstable and contentious topics in Spanish culture for the past fifty years.
BOS TAURUS is a visual and conceptual essay on the most popular and participative aspect of these festivities, written based on the contradictions created by humans in their relationship with useful animals. The work proposes a re-reading of the popular bullfighting subculture in the light of photography, history, economy, and the authors experiences. Its purpose is not to create a polemic but to highlight the uniqueness and feasibility of these events at the most crucial moment in its history.
