Camagüey, Cuba, May 18.- Lázaro David Najarro Pujol is the artist —journalism has given him that gift—; and Camagüey, the city that yields to its whims to capture its charms at the right moments.

The exhibition The artist and the city reveals the mid-thousand-year-old city in which the experienced reporter has carried out his journalistic work.

In sixteen snapshots, taken by Najarro between 2012 and the first months of the current calendar, we appreciate Port-au-Prince of “skin” of mud and winding streets; its Santa Cecilia Convention Center; three of its squares: that of San Juan de Dios, that of Carmen and that of the Workers; in addition to the Glorieta del Casino Campestre, among other images that demonstrate the status of Cultural Heritage of Humanity granted to the historic center in 2008.

The specialist of the Provincial Council of Plastic Arts of Camagüey in the words to the catalog pointed out that the “artist, highlights the red color that predominates in the vast urban landscape and that comes mainly from the tiles that cover the roofs of the oldest areas a Visuality that they say, also corresponds to Hispanic cities such as Seville, where, in the same way, the reddish clay tiles are the owners of the horizon, a color that has a special connotation for its inhabitants and is responsible for not a few nostalgic sighs when we are far from it.

The photographic portfolio The artist and the city is available to Internet users on the FotoRevista portal in Argentina. (Author’s photos).(Translated by Linet Acuña Quilez)
