DESAPARECIDOS

“El drama de los desaparecidos atraviesa toda mi vida profesional”, señala el fotorreportero Gervasio Sánchez en la presentación de este proyecto monumental al que ha consagrado buena parte de su trabajo. Guerras, dictaduras, persecución… y unos familiares que siguen buscando a los suyos, a aquellos que siguen viviendo en la memoria.

EL PAÍS se suma al MUSAC, el CCCB y La Casa Encendida para presentar simultáneamente este monumental proyecto fotográfico de Gervasio Sánchez. Haz clic aquí para ver ‘Desaparecidos’
