Double Look: the other Latin American photography

The exhibit includes works by documentary photographers from Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Venezuela, Chile and Spain.

Is it possible to talk about a Latin American documentary photography? The question compels to think about photography and its ideological determination from the origin of the technical device and its own evolution, to the history of Latin America. Curators Carla Möller and Jose Pablo Concha propose a widening of documentary language exploring the path of active photographers who have achieved critical autonomy to observe their own historical time.

The exhibit showcases photographs by Mauricio Toro Goya, María María Acha-Kutscher, Mauricio Valenzuela, Luis Alvarado and Spanish photographer Carlos Spottorno, among others.
