Presentation by Atelier EXB :

" This publication gathers Sergio Larrain's photographs made during his stay in London during the 1958-1959 Winter including half of new images – not published in the first edition published by Hazan in 1998. A selection enlarged by the Chilean photographer himself.

In London, Larrain constitutes his first important series during the four months of his residency supported by the British Council. Surprisingly, these photographs taken as he was wandering in the city have been scarcely reproduced in the press. An essay specially written by Roberto Bolaño for these images in 1998, shed light on the corpus along with a text by Agnès Sire relating the origin of this emblematic series. "

This book is published in two editions, in French and in Spanish (no version in English). Please select the version you wish to order below the price, before adding it to your cart.
