MSPF ARTIST TALK: Jorge Andres Castillo "Latent Fissures" - Auditorium
Venezuelan photographer Jorge Andrés Castillo talks about his black & white documentary photographs taken in Berlin in 1989, " I had the opportunity to photograph the Berlin Wall on the western side and even cross to the eastern side for a day... I was able to register the socialist aesthetic when nobody could glimpse the cracks behind the Iron Curtain” says Castillo.
