The book accompanying the stunning upcoming exhibition at Michael Hoppen Gallery
In an attempt to address the wealth of individual expression in Latin American photography, the philosophy that has guided this exhibition has been to listen to the voices of the participating artists. They challenge the popular acceptance of what has been codified as 'photography/ic' and, through sophisticated compositions, they propose a search for new meanings. Informed by their cultural identity they are not defined by it. Their voices should be listened to without the arbitrariness of our Western clichés and we should concentrate on a narrative from another place.
