Art Focus on 08/28/12
Lorena Guillen Vaschetti and Norma Vaschetti will be our guests. They have a show opening at Ampersand, an exhibition of photographs & paintings.
There is also a book - Lorena's recent body of work, Historia, memoria y silencios, investigates what truths from our past revealed or hidden within photographic documents, in this case a series of family slides that were all but lost in 2009. Lorena was able to recover only one box from the many that had been discarded. Examining the photographs from her own perspective, she re-photogtraphed select slides from a depth of field that leaves portions out of focus & the faces of her family members blurred. Released as a lovely first monograph in early 2012, Historia, memoria y silencios was chosen as one of the best photobooks of the year by PDN & Photo España 2012.
