About this product
- DescriptionChilean photographer Paz Errazuriz began taking photographs in the 1970s during the Pichet dictatorship, and in subsequent decades traveled extensively to document the landsape and people of her native country. Throughout her dedicated practice, Errazuriz became intimate with t only her home city, Santiago, but also Chile's central valley, Patagonia, and Valparaiso, forming long-lasting relationships with her many subjects. Her commitment to her subjects is steadfast - she is kwn for spending months or years within a given community, building trust and carefully studying social structures. During the dictatorship her projects were in violation of the regulations imposed by the military regime, as she dared to visit underground brothels, shelters, psychiatric wards, and boxing clubs, where women were t welcome. In Paz Errazuriz: Survey, over 170 photographs are compiled for the first time, resulting in a retrospective publication spanning over forty years. In the words of author Gerardo Mosquera, the spaces explored in Errazuriz's photos - beyond the striking personalities - reveal an extreme aesthetic that also exposes the potholes and irregularities left in the path of modernization. Her work consistently focuses on the social marginality that continues to plague the country, thereby capsizing Chile's image of buoyancy by intuitively penetrating the contradictions - the innumerable cracks and fissures-that persist to this day.
