The launch exhibition @ Bread & Butter Gallery will consist of photographs taken in both South America and Europe between September 2011 and June 2012. These will be displayed in miniature size, in 6 sets of 12 photographs which make connections between Politics and the Culture of South America and Europe, such as the student protests in Santiago, Chile in late 2011 and then the mass demonstrations against the government cuts in Madrid, April 2012.
The photographs, intended to have a comic edge, illustrate the satirical side to mundane moments. Expect to be amused as well as informed.. Photographic Sets Are Named: 1) The Santiago Dogs 2) The Cemeteries 3) Protests 4) The City 5) Valparasio 6) The Balconies.
