After reading Hemingway’s “Death in the Afternoon” I flew off to Spain to meet the worlds most important Matador, Joselito. There I spent 30 days with the Maestro of bullfighting photographing his beautiful romantic dance with his bulls. Here Joselito, fearless, Offers his manhood in exchange for the rush of the bull horns.
This remarkable image is the cover photo of Sandro Miller’s book El Matador: Joselito: A Pictorial Novel — representing the meeting of two men from completely different cultures who bonded in the recognition of each other’s art, as fellow adventurers and lovers of life.
“A remarkable and beautiful book in which the photographs capture the power and passion of bullfighting and the art and skill of the matador.”
Sandro has been a photographer for more than 30 years. His work has been featured in numerous publications, including The New Yorker, Time, Newsweek, and Esquire.
