“Macondo: Journeys in García Márquez’s Colombia” is a documentary photo project that explores the people and places that inspired the work of Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez, author of "One Hundred Years of Solitude." García Márquez was born and raised in Aracataca, a small town on Colombia's Caribbean coast. For his writing, he drew from his childhood, his hometown, and the people and places nestled along Colombia's coastal region, weaving them into a masterwork he titled "One Hundred Years of Solitude." The novel captivated the world and set the standard for the literary genre of magical realism, which has been a potent international force in literature, film, and art ever since. The setting and centerpiece of "One Hundred Years of Solitude" is the fictional town of Macondo.
Great research and base to create a colorful and bold photographic series. Nice color saturated portraits and a YES from me!
