Just by looking at this poster you can sense the blood & sweat, the victory & defeat of the bullfighting arena.
This poster advertises the winter festivities in the Andalucian city of Almería located in the southern Spain. The headliner in the bottom of the poster states: "The first bullfight of the year 1969 in the City of Light in the Costa del Sol".
The picture of the poster was taken during the last stage of the bullfight know as "Tercio de muerte" ("part of death") where the matador re-enters the ring alone with a small red cape or muleta in one hand and a sword in the other. This cape is stretched with a wooden dowel and, in right-handed passes, the sword as well. This stage as particularly risky for the matador as he has to get especially close to the bull in order to place the sword right in the back of the bull.
By looking at the focused and concentrated spectators on the poster one can imagine the silence and rush in the arena just before the matador is striking his sword...
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
