Andrés Quintero Muñoz

When: July 16-Aug. 30 2014

Colombia may be known for growing some of the best coffee in the world, but the nation's coffee industry is also part of an entire culture—and Colombian photographer Andrés Quintero Muñoz has documented that culture, with his work on display at Mestizo Gallery. Plantations owned by them, and he captured every detail of the coffee growers' lives. After that, the federation expanded his project to document the circumstances of those in the wider cultural landscape around coffee production—and considering the importance of coffee to the nation's economy and culture, it's really the story of an entire people. Colombian history, traditions and folklore are all wrapped up in the coffee bean, and the story is engrossing. The exhibit will be open for the July 18 and Aug. 15 gallery strolls, 7 to 9 p.m. There will also be a Meet the Artist reception Tuesday, August 5, at 7 p.m. (Brian Staker, City Weekly)
