Bullfight in Spain
Photograph by Luis Marden

A snorting bull, a roaring crowd, the majestic splendor of the matador in his ring—Marden captured it all as part of his April 1951 story, “Holy Week and the Fair in Sevilla.” “Sevillians . . . believe in the good life,” wrote Marden, noting a local man’s personal creed: “Eat and drink well, make love boldly, and thumb your nose at death.” “There are worse philosophies,” Marden concluded.
