As a tribute to the life of Colombian photographer Leo Matiz (1917-1998), one of the most singular and innovative figures of 20th century photography, the National Museum of Colombia in Bogota is presenting a selection of nearly 130 images showing the multiple facets of the photographer’s work, which lies between realism and abstraction, between avant-garde and caricature. Mirando al infinito (Staring Into Space) offers a panorama of Matiz’s aesthetics, humanism and innovation, exploring several themes: urban culture, water, the rural world, art, celebrity portraits, and experiments in surrealism.
