16 retratos excéntricos
Felipe Restrepo Pombo

NON-FICTION | 2014 | 191 pages

Celebrities give us the impression of being these inaccessible, walled-off beings who have armies of people trained to protect them from insistent reporters. Felipe Retrepo is one who never gives up and never forgets that behind every famous face there is a human being. His work as a reporter isn't only about asking questions—he observes what goes on around him, he reads, remembers, compares and transcends the border of what is private and what is not. In this fascinating book, Restrepo interviews key figures of contemporary culture such as Michel Houllebecq, Carla Bruni, Susan Sontag, Ferrán Adriá, Clint Eastwood, Julian Schnabel, Alejandro González Iñárritu and Ruven Afanador. A fascinating look into some of the most iconic figures of our century.
