ISLAA is a proud supporter of Usos de la fotografía VII: Fotos, published by Arta Ediciones.
This volume assembles eighty-three photographs by the Argentine artist Julio Grinblatt based on a series of portrait appointments conducted in Buenos Aires. When Grinblatt’s sitters—many of them prominent Latin American artists—entered his studio, they found a space emptied of all but a table with 900 black and white photos, comprising an assembly from the artist’s thirty-year archive. Grinblatt captures his subjects handling these photos with white gloves. The result is a visual essay and a compendium of the contemporary art canon of Latin America and beyond. Accompanying these black and white photographs are two essays by Verónica Tell and the artist Mónica Giron. This book is published in Spanish in a limited edition of 500 sealed copies—twenty-five of which are signed by the artist.
