Dreams of the Spider Woman
A panorama of late-20th-century Latin American photography, from leading lights to anonymous artists
Selected from Jean-Louis Lariviere's collection, Dreams of the Spider Woman offers a vast survey of Latin American photography from the late 20th century. The book is structured thematically, addressing three major axes that shaped the region during the 1960s and '80s: political violence, sexual identity and the role of women. Within these axes, a wide range of photographers--known, unknown and anonymous--representing different technical and aesthetic approaches are featured. The selected images were curated by Alexis Fabry.
Photographers include: Yani Pecanins & Gabriel Macotela, Rubén Torres Llorca, María Eugenia Haya (Marucha), George Friedman, Alejandro Kuropatwa, Alex Klein, Nicolás Goldberg, Maripaz Jaramillo, Marcos López, José Luis Venegas, Manolo Vellojín, Miguel Mitlag, Sivul Wilenski, Annemarie Heinrich, Diego Goldberg, Héctor López, A. Becquer-Casaballe, Eduardo Longoni, Jaime Rázuri, Pedro Valtierra, Norberto Puzzolo, Héctor García, Christian Montecino, Daniel Pajuelo, Álvaro Hoppe, Adriana Lestido, Alejandro Hoppe and Claudio Pérez.
