Feria de Libros de Fotografia de Autor 2011

August 14, 2011

The Feria de Libros de Fotos de Autor is taking place currently in Buenos Aires. It’s a book fair featuring locally published photo books.  The small fair takes place at Espacio Eclectico on Humberto Primo 730 in San Telmo and runs for another weekend. Here’s a few snaps I took.

The fair also features clever one-off,  home-made albums, and some objects that stretch the definition of “book”

On the walls are mini exhibits by some excellent photographers; Florencia Blanco, Sebastian Szyd, Ananké Asseff, Facundo de Zuviría, Luciana Betesh, and Sergio Liste.

I ended up buying a couple of books; Fachadas de Rafaella by Jimena Passadore and Imagenes en Memoria by Gerardo Dell’Oro They’re both quite good. I think I’ll end up writing separate posts about each but for now here’s a quick snap of each:

Espacio Formosa

September 14, 2010

Espacio Formosa is a small, store-front gallery in Villa Urquiza run by Guillermo Ueno and Lola Goldstein. About once a month they have gatherings featuring home-cooked food and music on the sidewalk. Here’s a few snapshots from an event this past Saturday:

The event was to celebrate the recent publication of several small photo books including Circulacion, which I wrote about yesterday. Pages from the various editions were cut out and pasted on the walls.

Ueno and Goldsteing run a blog called Tosto. I’d recommend adding it to your feed. They use it to announce events at the gallery and to feature photographs by students that attend their workshops.

I recently picked up a small pamphlet titled “Circulación“.

The publication features photos by Paula Barbetti, Leandro Ibarra, Leticia Lahitte, Martina Maffini, Soledad Manrique, Victoria Onassis, and Tomas Ruiz. I bought it for 20 pesos at Espacio Formosa, a small gallery in Villa Urquiza.
