Abstract

As photographic communities, Latin American photoclubs shared methodologies and objectives and played instrumental roles in advancing local photography. They did so by forming a cohesive network that not only connected them to one another but also integrated them into the global photography landscape through international photo salons. This lecture will offer a comprehensive exploration of the dynamic history of Latin American photoclubs, with a focus on the Southern Cone, during their formative and pivotal first decades. It will delve into their active evolution and significant impact within national contexts, with emphasis on the links between Argentina and Central Europe.
