"Lena Herzog first found the world of bullfighting through the gravures of Goya, which is the best way to enter it with a clear head and dark shadows. She recreated the image of a tragic and deadly spectacle.

"With her Leica as an analytical eye Herzog came into the world of bullfighting like an apocryphal with the distance and yet a clarity of insight..."

"The result [of her work] is an original look at the mystical moments in bullfighting. Even though she is a foreigner to the tradition she dominates it and finds in it a distinct point of view."
