Carbonel, Daniele & Pedro Soler, & Peter Muller, photographer.
Oro Plata: Embroidered Costumes of the Bullfight.

Paris Assouline: 1997.

"Enchanted with the "suit of lights," the heavily embroidered and beaded suit of the bullfight-gold for matadors, silver for the cuadrillas who also play their parts-photographer Peter MYller created this singular portrait of bullfighters and their "second skins." Because he worked with Don Ferm'n, the designer who clothes many of the greatest Spanish, French, and South American toreros, MYller was able to bring these men and their teams together in his studio. The resulting photographs-including gatefolded panoramas over 28 inches long of entire seven-man teams-reveal both the stunning workmanship of these unique costumes and also the pride and confidence of the bullfighters".

Hardcover. 10"x15", 162 pages, color illustrations, dust jacket. Fine.
