‘Zurumbático’ is an endless journey to the place where “One hundred years of solitude”, the literary work of the writer Gabriel García Márquez was born.

On the 55th anniversary of its original publication, and 40 years since the awarding of the Nobel Prize to García Márquez’s magical realism, Leica Gallery Madrid is pleased to show Luis Cobelo’s work for the first time in Spain in its entirety. A story full of extraordinary essence, contained in thousands of Latin American villages, roots of a gigantic empirical hemisphere, passionate, forgotten, fickle, violent, improvised and above all, happy.

Born in Venezuela, Luis Cobelo studied philosophy at the University of Zulia. He was raised and became a photographer between Venezuela and Spain. Beginning in 1993, he participated in numerous international photography festivals and solo exhibitions. He is based in San Francisco, California.

The exhibition continues at the Leica Gallery Madrid until January 21, 2023.
