Roland, if you don’t mind, I am going to give an answer to Alex’s question:

When I created this blog “MIRADAS”, in febuary 2005, blog that “gracias a Dios” Roland joined very actively 8 months later, my idea was to present my own shots, but also to speak of Latin America photography.

The fact is that I am living in Mexico since 2001, and that I had been discovering a lot of photographers of very high level in the subcontinent, but it sounded to me that the Latin American continent wasn’t represented as it had to be in the main photographic events, museums etc…

That is why, since the origins of this blog, we try to focus on Latin America.

But Roland, who writing very nice biographies of phototographs, in his chronicle “objectif Ameriques” studies and speaks also of North American photographers.

Thanks for having read this interview!!! And thanks Roland for all this excellent job that you do!!!

Why the interest in Latin American Photography ?
This is a good question !
I’ve got along well with Alain Rio, who is currently based in the mexican desert of the Sonora.
He works has a french teacher, and we share a passion about photography, so i offered him to write notes about photographers.
I began with some great figures,until i had the opportunity to communicate with AMI VITALE.
I asked her, if she would accept to answer some questions about her photographic work, and since i found that she was a great photographer, and a great human being, i did the same with Tomas Munita.
He had just won an award in the festival in ARLES France, so i taught that it would interest others internauts.
I found once again, that photographers can be great !
So i did his interview, and found out that he knew well AMI VITALE.
Since then, i’ve found two women, one is Véronique de Viguerie, and the other is Rena Effendi, and i’m going to release their interviews shortly on MIRADAS.
They don’t have anything special with Latin american photography, but their work is great, so they desserve to be known !
I hope that you will come on MIRADAS to read their stories.

Roland and Alain, I ask because of course I am involved in all things Latin American, and there is a lot of talent floating around in Central and South America as well as the Caribbean. If you are not limiting yourself to native Latin Americans then I suggest you take a look at the work of Sven Creutzman, who is represented by Polaris, lives in Cuba (for years) and has lots of good stuff. You will also find several native Cubans listed on LS and you might ask one of them for an interview, see what it is like working for Granma etc. On my blog you will find a link to another blog that lists a bunch of Cuban journalists and photographers. There are a lot of interesting photogs in Brazil — have a look at Pupo and Anderson Schneider here on LS too. Pupo is a bit of everything: a Cuban working in Brazil. We have many Argentinian members too, all of whom are doing good things. well, the list is long, I wont go into it, as you can find these people easily enough now that Fabien has fixed our member directory.
I will link your blog to mine. Nice to see this, it really is. I will keep checking in to read it.

Thanks for all those informations !
This will give us some new direction to look into.
Polaris seems to be a great agency filled with talentuous photographers.

We’ll keep in touch.
