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.
