About the Book
Putting this portfolio together, I realized how much it was about fight, or may be more often, "actuation" of fight:
Fight in the arena for the (old time)wrestlers...
Fight for the matadors in the arena of Mexico City...
Troops of horse riders organized as Roman Legions hunting for Christ ...
Groups of young men fighting as Good against Evil ...
Most of those fights are fake, and their ending known in advance. They are part of the Mexican identity, deeply religious, with its sense of drama, of resignation, dignity and derision.
