  • Artist Biography

    Facundo de Zuviría

    Argentinian • 1954

    Facundo de Zuviría graduated in law at the Universidad de Buenos Aires before turning to photography full time. During Argentina’s economic crisis of 2001, he started documenting the closure of small stores, which he witnessed throughout the capital. Siesta Argentina, the resulting series, constitutes a poignant meditation on Argentina’s fading urban identity. Zuviría has received multiple awards, including the prestigious Konex Award twice, in 1992 and 2012. His work has been exhibited worldwide and his work is held in numerous collections, including Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris and Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires.
