Marcos López
(Santa Fe, 1958)

Started taking photographs in 1978. In 1980/1981 he travelled around Latin America for the first time. In 1982 he was granted a scholarship by the Fondo Nacional de las Artes and he moved to Buenos Aires. In 1989 he was a member of the first group of foreign scholarship holders to graduate at the Escuela Internacional de Cine y TV, in Cuba. In 1993, after publishing a book of black and white portraits, he began his series in colour with his work “Pop Latino”. His latest work is called “Sub Realismo Criollo*”. He has an extensive international career and produces regular solo exhibitions in Mexico, Spain and Argentina. A retrospective exhibition of his work has been travelling around Argentina since 2009, and this year he participated in Les Rencontres d’Arles. He also received the Gran Premio de Honor (Honour Award) in photography from the Salón Nacional de Bellas Artes 2010. He lives and works in Buenos Aires.

* The Criollos were a social class in the caste system of the overseas colonies established by Spain in the 16th century, especially in Latin America, comprising the locally born people of pure or mostly Spanish ancestry.
