Memphis In May Exhibit Mississippi River Museum

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 their native 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.
