Interview in The Candid Frame with Ibarionex Perello

Interview of Hugo Passarello Luna for The Candid Frame with Ibarionex Perello

Los Angeles based photographer and podcast host Ibarionex Perello, interviewed me for his now famous show The Candid Frame, on my Unexpected Photo Essay on Cortázar, his readers and Paris. The talk went on for around 45 minutes, about the project, photography and journalism. You can discover the stories behind some of the photos of the project, how the idea came about and the details of the upcoming Unexpected Book.

So what is this “Unexpected Photo Essay on Cortázar”?

The story is a series of portraits, taken in Paris, of friends and readers of Argentine writer Julio Cortázar.

Each of the 70 participants had to choose a passage of the book Hopscotch that mentions a place in Paris. I then took a portrait of them in the chosen site, and asked them to briefly explain why they preferred it over others.
