Summary expansion
The photographs document the formal details of a bullfight, beginning with the entrance of the "alguacil," the horseman who receives the key of the bullpen from the president of the "corrida," and leads the ceremonial procession of the bullfighters into the ring. The participants in the grand entrance parade--alguacil, matadores, banderilleros, capeadores, picadores, and attendants, known as "sabios monos" ("wise monkeys")--are carefully noted in the captions. There are photos of the entrance of the bull, the placing of the banderillas, the matador confronting the bull, his formal request to kill the bull, the actual kill, and the mules who drag the dead bull from the ring. In the final photo, Mazzantini, champion matador of Spain, salutes the president of the corrida
