Hugo Martinez and Gisela Ballesteros

This photo of teacher and student was taken in the early 1950s Colombia. He looks the classic artist with his pencil moustache, beret, painter's smock and flamboyant tie. His subject is dressed similarly and clutches a bouquet of paintbrushes.
Their names are Hugo Martinez and Gisela Ballesteros and shortly after this photo was taken, they married. They have spent their lives in Bogotá, Colombia where they have dedicated themselves to the practice of art -- she as a painter and he as a sculptor.
