- title in english ‘knee/leg/thigh’ -
This series I made during a workshop in Arles, France. Lead by Francoise Huguier ( Agence VU', Paris) - Les Rencontres de la Photographie - april 2017
I photographed a number of ‘raseteurs’. These are mostly young boys and take this sport and training very seriously. They arrive in fast cars and girl groupies are dwelling around. They ‘touch’ the bull with a small device in their hands in order to gather points. To avoid the bull hitting them they need to be fast and jump on the rounded fence very speedily. Therefor they need to be very alert. I was intrigued by their flexibility and how these young men are able to jump onto the fences rapidly in order to avoid the bull. The title is referring to the most bodypart injuries during the training and competitions.
I focused as well on the shaduws of the bull, they seem to play a double role in the series.
