TV Interview for “Abierto al Atardecer”  

On a recent visit to Almeria I was interviewed for “Abierto al Atardecer” on Interalmeria Tv. We discussed my great uncle, artist Federico Castellon, photographing movie locations and the neighborhood of La Chanca in Almeria, and the breaking news of the day — the demolition of the historic mine processing plant known as El Toblerone.

My great-uncle, Federico Castellon, was a respected surrealist painter and graphic artist. Throughout the time I was growing up, we always had a few of his dream-like lithographs on display in our house. While Federico spent most of his career based in New York, he was born in Almeria, Spain. The stark desert landscapes of southern Spain can be seen in the background of some of his works. The exhibition “Federico Castellón, de Almería a Nueva York” opens later this month at the Museo de Almería. I plan to be there for the opening and to do some more photography […]
