Professional bullfighter Oscar Higares stands with his back to a bull in the ring during the annual village festival of San Juan in Campos del Rio, near Murcia in southern Spain. (Oscar Higares is featured in the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) Oscar and the bull spend just under 15 minutes together in the ring (an anxious period in which Oscar must control not only the objective dangers, but also his fear). Each bullfight ends with the killing of the bull by the matador (bullfighter). MODEL RELEASED.
