Marcelo Gurruchaga (Buenos Aires 1961) is situated in the language of photography to internalize heritage issues, both natural and historical-cultural. In several of his series and research units, he starts from the physical, from a natural space and in some geographically locatable such as Antarctica, to ask himself about personal and social processes. Living Topography presents us with a world in movement, in transformation, where what remains apparently unalterable, is nevertheless in continuous becoming. In Nacer y Renacer, he questions the landscape and intertwines it with the human, where the visual question about the nude, the exhibition, the diffuse relationship between man / landscape subtly appears.
