Octavio Paz, Mexican Poet, 1974



This is a very old photograph.
I had just started shooting everything that came my way after having bought my first camera in Toronto in 1973.
The great Mexican poet was there to read from his work at the auditorium of the University and we went to see him. I managed to get a couple of shots of him after the reading.
My friend Jorge Lozano insisted that I invite him to come to our house for a drink, which he, needless to say, refused. He had better things to do.
At least we tried.
