Paúl Na­va­rre­te (1982 - 2014) . fo­to­pe­rio­dis­ta / pho­to­jour­na­list

Nan Magazine - - IN MEMORIAM -

He­mos vis­to de cer­ca y le­jos la pa­sión de Paúl Na­va­rre­te por la fo­to­gra­fía, des­de su en­tu­sias­mo en el club de pe­rio­dis­mo de su co­le­gio, sus pri­me­ros pa­sos pro­fe­sio­na­les, su vo­ca­ción de via­jar, sus re­gre­sos lle­nos de vi­ven­cias, los pre­mios que ga­nó, los pro­yec­tos, las ideas, las con­vic­cio­nes. Paúl en­fren­ta­ba cual­quier re­to, en las asig­na­cio­nes, pro­po­nía con su mi­ra­da, so­ña­ba al­to, siem­pre con una son­ri­sa por de­lan­te, con­vier­tién­do­se en al­guien con quien com­par­tir tan­to res­pon­sa­bi­li­da­des edi­to­ria­les co­mo po­si­cio­nes fren­te al mun­do. De pron­to, nos ve­mos obli­ga­dos a de­cir has­ta pron­to a un gran co­la­bo­ra­dor y cer­cano ami­go. Des­de la di­rec­ción fo­to­grá­fi­ca de es­ta re­vis­ta y a nom­bre de to­do el equi­po de Ñan, no so­lo sen­ti­mos un va­cío in­men­so al per­der un pro­fe­sio­nal de su ca­li­dad y en­te­re­za, sino que ve­mos par­tir a un gran ser hu­mano. Paúl fue un con­ven­ci­do de que con su ofi­cio y su cá­ma­ra se pue­de ha­cer ver lo be­llo y lo du­ro de es­te mun­do; y así apor­tar… sa­cu­dir e in­vi­tar­nos a mi­rar­lo to­do des­de otra luz.

Que­re­mos com­par­tir con sus se­res que­ri­dos, es­ta ima­gen re­co­rrien­do Im­ba­bu­ra (La Mag­da­le­na) con Ñan.

We ha­ve wit­nes­sed, from near and afar, Paúl Na­va­rre­te’s pas­sion for pho­to­graphy, his be­gin­nings at his high school’s Jour­na­lism Club, his first steps as a pro­fes­sio­nal pho­to­jour­na­list, his lo­ve for tra­vel, the awards he won, the projects, ideas and be­liefs he che­ris­hed. Paul faced any cha­llen­ge, exe­cu­ted as­sign­ments di­li­gently, drea­med highly, smi­led ra­diantly, and be­ca­me so­meo­ne with whom to sha­re both edi­to­rial res­pon­si­bi­li­ties and thoughts about our world. Sud­denly, we are for­ced to say goodb­ye to a great co­lla­bo­ra­tor and clo­se friend. From the Pho­to­graphy De­part­ment of this ma­ga­zi­ne and on behalf of the en­ti­re Ñan team, we not only feel the im­men­se loss of his pro­fes­sio­na­lism, ta­lent and in­te­grity, but the void left behind by an ex­cep­tio­nal hu­man being. Paúl was con­vin­ced that with his job and his ca­me­ra, he could ex­press the beauty and cha­llen­ges of this world, and in that way, con­tri­bu­te… sha­ke us a little, in­vi­te us to look at things th­rough a dif­fe­rent light.

We want to sha­re this ima­ge of our jour­ney with Ñan to Im­ba­bu­ra (La Mag­da­le­na) with his lo­ved ones.
