Portraits of an Invisible Country Summary

Portraits of an Invisible Country: The Photographs of Jorge Mario Munera by Jose Luis Falconi

In 2003, Jorge Mario Munera won the Latino and Latin American Art Forum Prize at Harvard University, which entitled him to produce and present an exhibit at Harvard's David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies. By this time, Munera had already produced an important body of work, revealing even the farthest corners of his native Colombia through his photographs of people and their traditions.

Portraits of an Invisible Country
, which bears the name of the exhibit he presented at Harvard in 2004, is the culmination of a five-year collaboration between the photographer and the curator of the show, Jose Luis Falconi. It comprises a book of essays with insightful reflections on Munera's diverse body of work and a series of sixteen photo posters, which together highlight the photographer's travels within Colombia and his careful depiction of his countrymen and women.

Renowned in Colombia as one of the most prolific and influential photographers of his generation, Munera was the first recipient of the National Photography Award in Colombia in 1998. Since then, numerous international accolades have followed, chief among them as the first photographer to hold the Andres Bello Chair of the King Juan Carlos Center at New York University.
