  • Catalogue Essay

    Paz Errázuriz began photographing in 1972 as a means of resistance 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 co-founded the Association of Independent Photographers (AFI) in Chile in 1981. In 1986, she became the first Latin American woman photographer to be offered a Guggenheim Fellowship, and in 2017, she was awarded the Prix Madame Figaro at the Rencontres d’Arles.
