Mario Vargas Llosa wins Nobel Prize

The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2010 has been awarded to the Peruvian author Mario Vargas Llosa. In awarding the accolade, the Organising Committee noted that the award had been given to Llosa "for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual’s resistance, revolt, and defeat.”

I had the good fortune to photograph Mario Vargas Llosa at the Edinburgh International Book Festival in 2003. Llosa’s appearance at the world’s biggest literary festival coincided with the publication of his novel entitled ‘The Feast of the Goat.’
