PH: Fabian Laghi

Born in Argentina in 1963, he studied Journalism and Art History in Buenos Aires and Audiovisual Techniques in Madrid. In 1986 he began his professional career as Art Director in the production of covers and articles for magazines: Rolling Stone, Playboy, Cosmopolitan.

In parallel since 1999 he started as Art Director in advertising.
At the beginning of 2001 he moved to Barcelona (Spain), establishing his residence there for nine years. During that time he worked as Art Director in advertising and video clips.

In 2010, returned to Buenos Aires, he began a photographic reconstruction of the city, which led him to develop a personal vision of Buenos Aires architecture.
Between the implicit geometry of forms and the obsession with details, his visual universe reinvents the past of a cosmopolitan city. As a result of this search, he presents: "The Lover of Buenos Aires" and "Republic of Waires".

In 2017, he participated in the exhibition "How to read Pato Pascual" (Pacific Standard Time-Getty Foundation of Los Angeles).
