Bull Fight Pictures

Bull Fight Pictures Details
Everybody has at least heard of the Spanish bullfight, that pompous business of the ritualized killing of the animal by men in dazzling suits. It's a graceful, proud and fascinating spectacle, but it also comes with all the discomfort of watching an unfair fight. No matter how impressive the bull's performance, the game is forever rigged against him. Bullfighting is also an expensive and elitist affair: today's bullfighters marry into nobility, party with the Marbella jet set and are regular subjects of celebrity TV programmes. They're not "common people".
Recortadores, by contrast, couldn't be more common. The men who face bulls in the arena dressed in sportswear and sneakers and who are sometimes called bull-trimmers or bull-jumpers in English earn their living as welders, plumbers, computer engineers or petty criminals. They don't carry weapons and won't kill the bull -- in fact, if anyone gets harmed, it's them. They pray to their saints, whose laminated pictures they bring to every competition, and smoke furtively ducked behind the side fence between turns. They're in this for the kicks.
