Daniel Mordzinski (Argentina), known as the photographer of writers, has developed a body of work and an aesthetic that are intimately linked to literature and its mystique: from his first photos of Jorge Luis Borges in 1978, via hundreds of writers who have appeared through his lens, and with over 15 years of work linked to the Hay Festivals. His most recent publication is Hotel Chile, in which he remembers the great Chilean writer Luis Sepúlveda with some of his texts and, of course, photographs. In conversation with the educator Abel Martínez Hernández.
Bárbara Anderson (Mexico) became involved in the advocacy of disability rights after the birth of her son Lucca with cerebral palsy. Enrique Covarrubias is one of Mexico’s most important editorial photographers, and the quadriplegia that has resulted from an accident has not stopped him from carrying out major photographic projects. In his latest novel, Extrañas, the Mexican writer Guillermo Arriaga deals with certain pathologies considered to be curses in 18th century England. They will talk about the stigmas and many forms of not being defined by disabilities, with the cultural journalist Primitivo Olvera.
