Daniel Mordzinski in conversation with Juan Diego Mejía

Remembering Luis Sepúlveda

 Museo de Arte Religioso de Jericó
Daniel Mordzinski (Argentina), the photographer of writers, has developed a photographic work and an aesthetic intimately linked to literature and its mystique: from his first photos of Jorge Luis Borges, through hundreds of writers portrayed by his lens, and with more than 15 years of work linked to the Hay Festival. He talks to Juan Diego Mejía about his beautiful work and his most recent book, Hotel Chile, where he remembers the great Chilean writer Luis Sepúlveda with texts and photographs.

Event 10

Bernardo Pérez in conversation with Aurelio Martín

Photography with passion

 La Alhóndiga. Escenario Gales / Llwyfan Cymru

"You don’t take photos with a camera, but with your head and your heart.” So says Bernardo Pérez, whose viewfinder has been aimed at those black holes around the planet suffering from violence, extreme poverty and the abandonment of human rights. His camera was also a witness to some of the main events of the Spanish Transition to Democracy, after he joined the founding team of El País in 1976, as well sporting events such as the Olympic Games, heads of state, international conflicts… Pérez has accompanied writers such as Juan Goytisolo and journalists like Maruja Torres on projects for El País Semanal magazine, assignments that have taken him around the Americas and Europe. He will talk to the Hay Festival Segovia about his experience, putting words to the Compromiso con la realidad exhibition that will accompany the festival, putting a selection of his images on show.

Pérez will talk to the journalist Aurelio Martín.
