Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Published by Kerber Photo Art
Dimitris Yeros possesses a collection of enough very beautiful images to constitute the material for an interesting and original large-size book of 136 pages, 24x30cm, with hard cover and dust jacket. This book is a photographic document, a fitting tribute to García Márquez, seeing that he has captured him in some of the most beautiful moments of his last years. The book will also be a source of useful information to the readers and admirers of his work, in the hope that it will give them some insight into his personality.
“This book is fascinating because it shows us aspects of one of the greatest writers of our age. Each likeness is subtly different. Each is an avatar of a complex personality – complex enough to hide in plain sight. One might even go so far as to say that each is a loving betrayal.
I am quite sure that those who turn these pages will find themselves looking at them, not once, but repeatedly. The point about Magic Realism in literature is that it seeks to present not just outer reality, but the operation of some kind of inner realm, linked to reality but somehow transcending it.
That is what these portraits do here, thanks to the magic of the lens.”
