“The Latin American Photobook: The best kept secret in the history of photography.” —Martin Parr

The Latin American Photobook presents a selection of volumes from the 1920s to the present, providing revelatory perspectives on the under-charted history of Latin American photography. Join us on Thursday evening for the opening reception of The Latin American Photobook exhibition, curated by Horatio Fernández, editor of The Latin American Photobook (Aperture, 2011), and again Saturday for a one-day symposium to accompany the exhibition, featuring a full day of discussion with photographers, curators, editors, professors, and publishers engaged with the Latin American photobook.

The exhibition, presented earlier in 2012 at Le Bal, Paris, and Ivorypress, Madrid, features work by great figures such as Claudia Andujar, Barbara Brändli, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Horacio Coppola, Paz Errázuriz, Graciela Iturbide, Sara Facio, Paolo Gasparini, Daniel González, Sergio Larraín, and many others.
