Imagining Orwell in Three Continents
Award-winning photojournalist Julio Etchart takes us on a photographic travelogue exploring Orwell's journey of discovery from his time as an imperial policeman in Burma in the 1920s to his adventures as a fighter against Fascism during the Civil War in Spain in the 30s, and his sojourn in Morocco, which led him to write two seminal books: 'Burmese Days' and 'Homage to Catalonia', as well as his poignant 'Marrakech' essay. Excerpts from his writings and journals accompany the images.
'Like Orwell, he is naturally on the side of the man and woman in the street... As a documentarian, he is fearless. He transcends frontiers, language and class' — Robert McCrum
