“In this project, no doubt one of the most personal in which I have been involved to date, I set out to address unreservedly the difficult and fascinating relationship – which for me is essential – between image and word, photography and literature, always on the basis of the importance that I, as a photographer, attach to the idea of the trace (as opposed to that of aura). To explore all this, I took the liberty of working on the life and oeuvre of one of the greatest writers not only of Spain but of universal literature: Miguel de Cervantes. I was incessantly plagued by surprises and uncertainty. It was quite a bold undertaking.” José Manuel Navia.
