Talks SP-Foto 2019 – Olho no Olho: Fotografia & Literatura


Photographer Cristiano Mascaro confided to writer and literary critic Noemi Jaffe his conception of the role of the photographer as a sort of life chronicler. Starting from this idea, Mascaro talked about his intimate relation with literature and to what extent certain books by fundamental names of this universe, such as Clarice Lispector, Ernesto Sabato, Italo Calvino and the critic Antonio Candido, have been source of inspiration throughout the long path of his photographic production. This panel was part of a cycle of panels on photography and literature, conceived in partnership with Escrevedeira.
