Atramento is a Latin term which means ink, but it’s also an acronym for ‘atrapa el momento’ (‘capture the moment’, which is what Fernando González Sitges does in his travel notebooks. Camera at the ready and pen in hand, he uses them to lead us to hidden-away, unexpected places.
He is a zoologist, adventurer, photographer, illustrator, director, biologist ‘in boots, not a lab coat’, scriptwriter, explorer, documentary maker, film director… and a storyteller. For more than 30 years, he has filmed, drawn and photographed nature and wildlife in their purest state. And you will find those personal experiences, in his own words, along with his drawings, which make this book a real treat.
The worthy successor of Enrique el Navegante, Charles Darwin, Ernest Shackleton and Peter Beard, this adventurer bequeaths us his time so that we may travel around five continents in thirteen thrilling journeys via his camera and paintbrush.
All you have to do is read the prologue by Iker Jiménez, where he defines the author as ‘a being even more prodigious than what he saw, drew, filmed and wrote’, to learn that this book does its title justice: it ‘captures the moment’.
