Sebastián Mejía Exhibition

I really like the work of Sebastián, more than a good photographer, is a very good friend. I feel honored to help him doing the poster for his latest exhibition “Intervalo Peatonal” at Metales Pesados Gallery in Santiago, Chile.

Nombre y Forma Book — Camila Valdes

This work gathers everyday incidents. The scenes of each of these photographs deliver information recognizable to many, normal objects that refer to learned names: the similar and the common. Among them, accidental shapes too. Areas hiding coincidences, transformation and a longing for the natural.

Even though this book has nothing to do with words, the silence within them also speaks.

CLAP! 10×10 Contemporary Latin American Photobooks

CLAP! 10×10 Contemporary Latin American Photobooks is a photobook reading room that presents 130 contemporary Latin American photobooks from 2000 to 2016. Organized by the nonprofit 10×10 Photobooks, the project launched at the PGH Photo Fair at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh from 13-15 May, 2016 and was exhibited at the Aperture Foundation in New York City from 2-5 November, 2016 before concluding at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) from 2-3 March 2017. At the end of the reading room tour, all the books in the project will be donated to the Hirsch Library at the MFAH.

Selected by 12 Latin American specialists (either in teams or individually), the reading room is a hands-on opportunity for North American audiences to browse a range of recently published Latin American photobooks that are rarely seen or available in the US. The selected books, representing many of the most exciting innovations in contemporary Latin American photography and publications, will be documented in the forthcoming (Release: March 2017) comprehensive CLAP! book, designed by Ricardo Báez with essays by Luis Weinstein and Joaquim Marçal F. de Andrade.

Food court — Good food

Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth… these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women’s empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all. This is my collaboration for the Food Court project realeased in the Toronto Art Book Fair 2016, thanks for the energy Chris Lee
