About the Book
The project became a touring exhibition and was originally shown at the Frontline Club in London, at the launch of one of the annual editions of the Orwell Prize for political writing.
I then decided to follow up my calling and join the visual narrative of his earlier experiences in South East Asia with that of the Spanish Civil War, a quest that took me to Catalonia and Aragon, the main settings of his historical account of those hostilities that were to become a preamble to the Second World War.
I grew up in Uruguay and later settled in the UK where I studied Documentary Photography at Newport Art College. I have since travelled round the world for the international media and have also worked as still photographer, consultant and researcher for film and TV companies. I regularly take commissions from recording labels, PR and touring agencies, promoters and magazines to cover musical events, festivals, dance and theatre. I have produced audiovisual material and touring displays for Non Governmental Organizations like War on Want, Save The Children, OXFAM, Christian Aid, CAFOD, VSO, UNICEF, the British Council and the European Union. I am now distributing my colour photographs online through Still Pictures and my black and white material through Panos Pictures in the UK.
