• Macondo

    The writer Gabriel García Márquez always said that is signature magic-realist style is no more than a faithful reporting on the world of his childhood. He was born in Aracataca, Magdalena, a tropical Caribbean town on Colombia´s northern coast. Many consider Aracataca to be the model for Macondo, the fictional town where his most famous novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude, takes place.

    I made these images in Aracataca and other towns in the region that nurtured one of the world´s most admired writers.
