Mata Matayoshi & Ofuro

October 29, 2012

Recently I got an email flyer for a small exhibit in Buenos Aires that advertised photos, music and empanadas. Boy, did I feel nostalgic. The show in question was Te Toca Lavar, by photographers Mata Matayoshi and Victoria Abalde, friends of mine from when I lived in Argentina. Mata runs an excellent film scanning service called Ofuro that I’ve used and will do so again the next time I’m down there. There’s a group on facebook, where Mata uploads scans of his own photos as well as those of his clients:

Now at ASU

October 11, 2012

Sorry for the absence of posting. I’ve been busy with grad school…

My student ID card

In August I started a three year MFA program at Arizona State University. A couple of years ago I started thinking I would like to have a more formal education in photography. Last year I came to the US and I spent a month looking at various schools. Of all the ones I visited, ASU was the program that I liked the best. I applied and, luckily, was accepted. And so, since August, I’ve been in Phoenix (technically Tempe) studying.

I hope to keep blogging about what I’m working on and also goings on in Argentina, although I’ll have to do so from a distance.
