Cia de Foto

Highly stylized, poignant and emotional are words that come to mind upon first encounter with CiadeFoto2.jpg

Assignments for the mainstream press are their bread and butter but Rafael Jacinto, one of the founding members of Cia de Foto, emphasized to me once that they also feel it's important to do projects they are personally interested in, a philosophy that shows through in their work.

If you'll be in Santiago, Chile for the Foto America biennial event between 29 October 2008 and 16 January 2009, you can check out a panel with them at the Museu Nacional de Bellas Artes on 30 Ocober 2008.
