WEBWIRE – Wednesday, March 2, 2022
Valparaiso–the Jewel of the Pacific is one of the most beautiful and historic cities in Chile. The city of Valparaiso was a port of call for commercial freighters until the Panama Canal opened in 1914. Valparaiso was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its unique urban design and distinctive architecture.
Paulo Zavala, an artist, and architect, roamed the quirky pathways and steep slopes of this intriguing port town. However, Chile went through a turbulent time when the military launched and succeeded in a coup détat against Salvador Allende. The event ushered in a dark era in which civil rights, were not respected. Paulo is one of the brave people who opposed the dictatorship, but his bravery was why he had to leave the city he had called home for thirty-six years.
Paulo takes us on a journey through the lens of his camera in the book Farewell to Valparaiso. This photobook elicits extreme emotions and showcases a wealth of colored photographs. The pictures featured in the book allow the readers to roam Valparaisos historic streets. Paulo will let the readers experience the heart-racing melancholy he felt when he took the photos.
These photographs reflect the emotional intensity of the moment, the pain of viewing a familiar place, only inhabited by the souls of the people gone. The photographic images that you see in this book are the graphic rendering of my soul at the time of leaving such a loved place. Paulo writes.
Walk with Paulo as he bids farewell to a piece of his heart.
