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.

Note: The photo above was taken at the Argentinean Student Residency in Paris where Cortázar lived in the Argentinean Residency during his first years in France. The hands belong to Marcelo Balsells current director of the residency.
