Sangre de reyes is a cycle of life experiences, of grandiose moments that remind us of the importance of passion and its highest expression, where death is just another step to be taken. The images speak for themselves, like the maestro himself, whose bullfighting itself is his most eloquent introduction.

The Spanish-Mexican photographer Carlos Cazalis (b. 1969 in Mexico City) has followed the great matador José Tomás to three different countries―from his reappearance in Barcelona in 2009, through his sublime performance in Nîmes in 2012, to his controversial appearance in Plaza México in 2016―to compile this stirring cinematic presentation of a duality embraced by modern bullfighting.

Cazalis has won several international awards, including the World Press Photo. With roots in the Mexican city of Aguascalientes and the Spanish Basque country, he is the great-nephew of Alfonso Ramírez, El Calesero. This book, his second, speaks with a strong, honest voice about one of the most controversial cultural practices in the modern world.
