15 bullfighters, their own path through life. Very different stories, with one thing in common : determination in front of the bull. Figuras, retired bullfighters, promises, banderilleros, they all have paid the price for courage with their own blood. In front of the animal, there are no differences and only truth remains. Their truth. Joséphine Douet let the soul and body of these extraordinary men speak for themselves. The project is based on Picasso’s portrait of Luis Miguel Dominguin. With its simple composition and total symbiosis with his model, Picasso transmited the strength of the matador, the essence of being a torero. Joséphine Douet takes the same approach, through a serie of portraits of bullfighters, whose common point is to be wearing in their own flesh the signs of their vocation and toreria. And to have agreed to show the difficulties of leaving through it. In body and soul. The work in centered on courage, primordial and inherent to this world, with its awards and dramatic consequences. On beauty, told on the map of a body thats lived its passion in person. The strength and vulnerability that live together in bullfighters personality make this testimony unique. And so does their engagement with the project.
