Located in a flat in the famous Corrientes Avenue in Buenos Aires, for more than 30 years “Luisita Photo Studio” portrayed hundreds of celebrities of the Argentinian show business.
Starting in the 60’s, Luisita - the shy and sensitive woman behind the camera - found the way to position herself in a field of art dominated by men. Together with her two inseparable sisters, they performed a great labor of craft work that - although shadowed by technology - today has a new meaning.
More than 25,000 unpublished photos from the Argentinian pop culture open up in front of our eyes, and, together with them, the Escarria sisters’ spirit that remains intact.
