The title of the photographic exhibition takes its name from the homonymous novel by Alejo Carpentier.

Chronicle of your time. The right moment to he operates the shutter of the camera. The personal enigmatic that pose for the photographer. The feeling of opening a space where he can observe a social essay and even a critical sense are some of the interiors of Julio César García‘s “The Kingdom of this World”.

The photographic proposal is one of the exhibitions and projects of “Intermittent Rivers” of the XIII Biennial Havana in the Matanzas city.

Its author, in a clear reference to the novel by Alejo Carpentier, shares in its photographs the stories of people (old people who roam the streets and others who act as street vendors) who are around us and who sometimes go unnoticed, perhaps because of the Hasten to walk in the Cuban society of the last times. It is an emphasis on representing a generation that is part of the history of Cuba.

A characteristic that stands out in these images is the pose of the portrayed, an element of connotation with a great semantic and semiotic charge; theorized in the second half of the 20th century by the French semiologist Roland Barthes; and that Julio César made it the center of his speech, achieving an intentionality to establish a special connection with the spectators.

The photographs of the lens artist were accompanied by snapshots of the young Leslie Loyola (who inaugurated her Iwa Mimo show), both belonging to the “Arraigo” project of this Cuban city.
