Faith in bullfighting is a personal photographic project that collects intimate moments of promising young men in the art of bullfighting (they are called "novilleros", because they fight steers - bulls of less weight and age). They are not famous or well-known bullfighters. They are young people who try to find an opportunity in this world, most of them with a deep faith that one day the opportunity to succeed will come.
