Until the 24th of October you have the chance to visit a photography exhibition of famous writers, hosted at an unusual space, as part of the Dimitria Festival.
Daniel Mordzinski, was born in Buenos Aires in 1960, and is considered the writers’ photographer.
This is something that has earned him various roles, from war correspondent, to a photojournalist based in France and author of more than ten travel guides. Over the last 30 years he has photographed every writer and great thinker that he could get his hands on, which has had him closely follow the evolution of literature over these last three decades.
Mario Vargas Llosa himself even said that, to say that Mordzinski has photographed authors is simply not enough, but rather he makes profound and respectful interpretations of their personality as is reflected in the features and characteristics of his photos.
The Argentinian photographer has photographed writers such as Jorge Amado, Martin Amis, Paul Auster, Francisco Ayala, Mario Bendetti, Jorge Luis Borges, Julio Cortázar, Gabriel García Marquez, José Saramago and Mario Vargas Llosa.
