Hernando Toro is one of the most important Colombian portraitists with an intriguing life story and a fascinating body of work. This special event will run for seven days and will see two screenings of the feature-length documentary Toro (Adriana Bernal-Mor & Ginna Ortega, 2023) alongside a photography exhibition with a selection of the artist’s work, all at the Whitespace Gallery in Edinburgh.
Toro shows in an intimate way how Hernando Toro began his career as a photographer while in prison for drug trafficking in Barcelona. This documentary, that began by researching the protagonist’s dodgy past, turns into a beautiful observation of this magnificent artist’s life.
