    Garage Mag, Round Up November 2, 2015

    VOCES (Voices) presents some of the most influential and recognised Latin American photographers alongside emerging artists who have used the photographic medium as a way of individual expression over the last four decades. The works on display are a form of photojournalism, documenting the photographers daily lives, experiences and identities within a socio-political context.

     

    The exhibition runs until the 9th January 2015 at the Michael Hoppen Gallery and displays an incredibly vibrant and engaging insight into life in Latin America over the last 35 years.
