This article discusses José Antonio Osorio Lizarazo’s interviews and profiles as biographical constructions. During the 1920’s Osorio Lizarazo (1900-1964), a Colombian journalist and writer, published interviews and reportages about urban characters in the journal Mundo al Día. More than ten years later he wrote profiles about some of these same characters, but in this opportunity they were published in El Tiempo. Therefore, this article argues that these profiles belong to his journalist and literary repertoire but also are a mean to articulate his criticism to the liberal party.
