Luis Sepúlveda faces the camera.
Hotel Chile presents a series of unpublished writings by Luis Sepúlveda alongside photographs of the author taken by Daniel Mordzinski, known as “the photographer of the writers” and Sepúlveda’s friend for more than thirty years.
The texts and the images give us a glimpse of the author’s private world – his personal and family relationships, as well as the making of his books and the places that were important in his life and work. A necessary homage that commemorates the mark left by one of the most widely read Latin American writers in the world.

“An invitation to adventure and paradise.”—Antón Castro, El Periódico
