El Rio Magdalena - The River of Our Life

17 Colombia Mud Island

The photographer Nereo López and the writer Gabriel García Márquez were tireless travelers and knew closely the splendor of the great Magdalena River, whose waters cross Colombia from south to north. This exhibition, from the photographic archive bequeathed by López and "El río de nuestra vida" (The river of our life), a text published by García Márquez, and curated by the Ministry of Culture and the National Library of Colombia presents an intriguing juxtaposition of image and word. For more information on this event, click here.
