  • Catalogue Essay

    Between 1982 and 1987, Paz Errázuriz collaborated with journalist Claudio Donoso on the series Adam’s Apple, documenting male sex workers and transvestites in brothels in Santiago and Talca. Through Errázuriz’s photographs and Donoso’s transcription of their stories, the life of this community and the ways in which these individuals maintained control of their bodies in the shadow of the Pinochet dictatorship were revealed. Evelyn, the subject of the present work, features prominently in the series. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid holds another early print of this image, and later prints reside in the collections of Museum of Modern Art, New York and Tate Modern, London.

    Paz Errázuriz began taking photographs in the 1970s during the Pinochet dictatorship and continued documenting the social landscape of her native Chile in subsequent decades. She is known for her ability to capture the resoluteness of the regime’s marginalised victims in intimate portraits. Errázuriz was the first Latin American woman photographer to be offered a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1986 and was awarded the Prix Madame Figaro at the Rencontres d’Arles in 2017.
