Portraits of Maestro Joaquín Orellana, Guatemala
In february 2019 I had the possibility to make a photoshooting with Maestro Joaquín Orellana direct in his studio in the National Theatre in Guatemala City. The 88 year old composer is very famous because of his instrument-creations (he calls them not instruments but "utiles sonoros" - always in connection to the Marimba). I was very impressed of his knowledge about sounds, his intelligence and his big sense of humor - a very sympathic meeting. Also the wellknown director Maestro Julio Santos was at this photoshooting.
