El Toro

Meeting a Spanish symbol…

A silhouette that appears on the Spanish horizons, which began as an ad and ended up being a symbol. It is recognized as something familiar and mysterious. A gesture frozen in time. Its name is El Toro de Osborne (The Osborne Bull).

Whenever I photograph a Osborne Bull, I can’t forget a great photographer who made the best photographic work about El Toro de Osborne, Mr. Larry Mangino, who I had the opportunity to follow during a great seminar some years ago.
