Photography: Guillermo Srodek-Hart:  Short Stories
Dina Mitrani Gallery, Miami
Through March 30, 2012

Short Stories by photographer Guillermo Srodek-Hart at Dina Mitrani Gallery in Miami includes images taken during the artist’s travels to remote rural towns outside of Buenos Aires. With his large format, 4x5 film camera, he captures cluttered old shops and bars that have been frozen in time.  His complex compositions deliver rich color images with densely overflowing content, giving the viewer's eye an innumerable amount of detailed information to  observe.Accompanying the photographs in the show are texts that glimpse further into the lives of those people that the artist encounters in these isolated towns.

“My photographs are filled with traces of human presence: objects, furniture, stuff hanging from the walls, accumulations on display. They speak to me of the invisible, that which can't be seen but is there, stories to be imagined, and, ultimately, the acknowledgement of our own transience in this world." – Guillermo Strodek-Hart
