Benaki Museum 138 Pireos St. - Matiz-Gabo: The chroniclers of Macondo

The exhibition reveals where the photographies of Leo Matiz meet the texts of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The legendary photographer and the leading representative of magical realism in literature, were born with a decade difference in Aracataca.
In the 40 photographs presented in the exhibition, the viewer will find that many decades before the invention of the fictional Macondo, the place and life there was a tangible reality. In combination with the texts, the fiction of writing is combined with the realism of the photographic lens.
