Hugo Passarrello Luna is a photographer and a multimedia journalist. His "Unexpected Photo Essay on Cortazar, his readers and Paris" was exhibited in several locations in Paris and was mentioned by media all over Latin America. The story is a series of portraits taken in Paris of friends and readers of Argentine writer, Jose Cortazar. The project seeks to create a hopscotch of images that weaves together the personal stories of participants with Cortazar and Paris.
Each of the participants had to choose a passage of the book Hopscotch that mentions a place in Paris. Passarello then photographed them in the chosen site and asked them to briefly explain why they preferred it over others.
He transforms the traditional photo essay into a participative and playful project, where the people portrayed and the audience get to write and rewrite the story by playing around with the images.
