Argentine Photographers To Watch For

BAPhoto will be taking place until the 16th of October and promises to be one of the BA artistic events of the spring. The local photography scene has been growing over the past years and is now well established in the city, which now has it’s own photo library (FoLa). Below, we include a list of some upcoming Argentine photographers and artists to watch for!
