Con magnífica ironía

Added on by Jaime Permuth.

A beautiful photograph of Borges in his library in Buenos Aires by Eduardo Comesaña, 1971.  For the past several months, and as an extension of my project “Olmedini El Mago”, I’ve been researching the ways blindness is represented in art, particularly in photography.  The results of my inquiry are posted to my instagram account: @jaime_permuth


 “Nadie rebaje a lágrima o reproche

esta declaración de la maestría

de Dios, que con magnífica ironía

me dio a la vez los libros y la noche”.
