Campamento de Invierno (Winter camp)

These series of images were commissioned by the independent curator Mane Adaro for the first Valparaiso International Photography Festival (

The images strive to find something that would identify the city, beyond the images built as a souvenir for travellers. Thus, the series attempt to collect those day-to-day elements whose commonplace condition makes them disappear from the constructed and grandiose official picture to become invisible landscapes.

The kiosks, closed and off-season (and thus out of sight for tourists) are shown within a fixed frontal and almost symmetrical framing. This formal element unifies the series and translates the spaces into the two-dimensional images as a kind of geometric and visual inventory of the port city.
