Festa do Espirito Santo

As a personal project, I sought out to photograph a traditional Bullfight. I attended the Festa do Espirito Santo in Artesia where the Portuguese Hall conducts bloodless Bullfights. I attended one years ago and have always wanted to document one.

I have always loved the ceremony and pomp of Bullfights. The music is powerful, moving and out of this world!

I would like to preface these photos by stating that this was a traditional Portuguese Bullfight. Therefore the Bullfight was bloodless. No animals were harmed.
