LIMITED EDITION OF 1000 COPIES. The rich collection of photographs comprised in the present book are a timely memory of an unrepeatable encounter that happened more than 35 years ago between a triplet of great artists and friends: filmmaker Luis Buñuel, artist Alberto Gironella and photographer Héctor García. To celebrate the 75th birthday of film director Buñuel, artist Alberto Gironella invited a group of Buñuel's most intimate friends (Julio Cortázar, Gabriel García Márquez, Carlos Fuentes, Silvia Lemus, Carmen Parra, José de la Colina and Alejandro Jodorowsky, amongst others) to a party on the night of 1975 to the art gallery "Galería GDA" owned by Giorgio D'Angeli and Alicia Gironella in Mexico City. The meeting was graphically documented by Héctor and María García. The central part of this edition is the artwork produced by Héctor García and Alberto Gironella in honor of their great friend and mentor: Luis Buñuel. These pieces - mostly large format collages mounted over photographic plates taken by García, such as portraits of Buñuel during the filming of his movies- would be intervened later by Gironella and exhibited as a group for the first time in 1975 as homage to the cineaste. The book includes unedited photographs of Héctor García and other guests present during the opening of the exhibition "Develando a Buñuel" held in Oct. 2011 at the La Galería/Fundación Héctor García
