There are a number of essential writers in Spanish-language short fiction, and one of them is Gonzalo Calcedo, who recently won the Castile and Leon Literature Prize. His short stories tell of worlds that are nearby, or hidden; urban and natural; which reveal solitude but also fellow-feeling among humans. His many titles include La carga de la brigada ligera, Temporada de huracanes, El prisionero de la Avenida Lexington and Las inglesas.
There are also other ways to tell stories: with the opening of a camera shutter. This way of talking about life is the one chosen by the photographer Ángel Marcos. His images not only reveal far-off worlds, often endangered ones, but are also a commitment to human beings. Marcos has travelled to cities such as New York and Barcelona, and countries such as China, Cuba, and the Vatican to create images that have been exhibited in major museums in Spain and abroad.
This compassion for the people around them is what unites these two artists, who will talk about their careers and the links between writing and photography.
Calcedo and Marcos will talk to the journalist and writer Angélica Tanarro, author of books such as Serán distancia and Memoria del límite.
