Torero Photography Please

December 05, 2012

Powerful, dramatic, colorful....How much personality do they infuse in a room? A LOT!! The drama comes from the poses for sure, the color from their beautiful embroidered outfits, and the power from the act of fighting the bull.  But really all this is magnified by the size of the prints.  They work so well in this supersized format. I have no idea who the photographers are of these pieces, but I will investigate.  (I think the second image may not be a photo but an actual torero suit...but the drama effect is what I'm after...and that purple!!)

The rest of the apartment of the first image is amazing see more of it here.

Last summer I caught this shot of a street performer dressed up as a torero in front of the Royal Palace in Madrid.  Even though this suit is a "cheapie" you can still see all the handwork involved.  Imagine what a real suit would look like.

I bet you that the next big subject in photography after beaches seen from a bird's eye view or Marfa's Prada store (don't get me wrong I love these too) will be bullfighters!  Ha!  Not a bad a idea.....there is so much character there to be explored.

On another note- If you are in the Dallas area this Friday and love skin care Tata Harper will be at Neiman Marcus (Northpark) giving a Master Class from 2:30 - 4.  If you would like to come please email me and I will put you on the list.  You can read more about her here.

And don't forget to enter The Aestate's giveaway here.  It ends on Dec. the 10th at midnight!  You don't want to miss it.

Happy Hump day!!
