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!
From the series Sus casas (Their Houses)
Video artist and photographer Lihuel Gonzalez captures the intimacy of people’s lives and their relationship to their personal surroundings while also exploring themes such as isolation, memory, detachment and the physical aspect of the body interacting in space. Look at her collection of photographs here.
