Writing through the rain

    Escribiendo bajo la lluvia

    Viseu (Portugal)

    Detalle de las manos del escritor portugués Aquilino Ribeiro (1885-1963).

    Él fue uno más de tantos artistas que tuvo que exiliarse a Francia para poder expresarse sin censura, en un momento en el que uno no podía decir lo que pensaba si no contaba con el beneplácito del régimen político vigente. Así que, literalmente, tuvo que luchar contra viento y marea (y lluvia). Huyó de su tierra simplemente para poder opinar en contra de la monarquía. Por pensar distinto, no le estaba permitido tener una voz.

    Es curioso cómo han pasado 100 años de este y tantos acontecimientos similares y, sin embargo, hechos muy similares siguen ocurriendo, desgraciadamente, en muchos lugares del mundo.

    Detail of the hands of the Portuguese writer Aquilino Ribeiro (1885-1963).

    He was just one of many artists who was exiled to France just to be able to express himself freely without censorship, in a time when you could not speak your mind unless it had the approval of the political regime. So, he literally had to fight against all odds (and through the rain). He fled his homeland because he was against the monarchy. He was not allowed to have a voice in his own country.

    Funny how it was 100 years ago, however, very similar events continue to occur, unfortunately, in many parts of the world.
