Minotaurus

To be different could be a terrible burden…

Long time ago in Ancient Greece, a wise man wrote a tale about a creature doomed and marginalized without any guilt of his own.

Minotaur, a monster, was condemned to live in the Labyrinth to hide the shame of his parents.

But as in all classic tales, behind the appearances, there are always many hidden messages…

Many years after, in his novel “The house of Asterion”, Jose Luis Borghes showed us Minotaurus from one different perspective.

This photo story is being inspired in this tale, but located in another time and another place.

These images are dedicated to all the persons who suffer for being different in some way…

INTRO

I was born in Plaza de Toros. Since I was a child I was wandering through the corridors admiring brave bulls and valiant toreros.
I am bewitched with corrida, with the colour of the sand of the bullring, cheering of the people at the sunset, the flash of veronica…but inside of me I feel the pulse of my dark destiny…kill or to be killed.
The curse of being different is like a flame. This fire confuse me, consume me and make me feel alone…
