In an attempt to address the wealth of individual expression in Latin American photography, the philosophy that has guided this exhibition has been to listen to the voices of the participating artists. They challenge the popular acceptance of what has been codified as 'photography/ic' and, through sophisticated compositions, they propose a search for new meanings. Informed by their cultural identity they are not defined by it. Their voices should be listened to without the arbitrariness of our Western clichés and we should concentrate on a narrative from another place.

This first monograph on Nicolás Franco´s work,  is conceived to document his solo exhibition at Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes held in 2012. It presents a selection of projects by the Chilean artist: from his early works, focused on sound and light installations, to his most recent, aimed at exploring history trough photography and printed matter. Three essays, each of which covers a relevant aspect of Franco´s oeuvre, carefully contextualize the artworks presented here. Fernando Castro Flórez puts Franco´s practice into an art historical perspective; Patricio M. Zárate delves into the technical procedures in Franco´s works; while Eugenio Dittborn deals with the poetry of Franco´s appropriation strategies.
