With a poetic approach, Sergio Larraín inspired a whole generation of photographers. This collection of rare images, originally selected for an exhibition, from the Chilean photographer traces the essential photographs from his career.
A penchant for the vagabond’s life, a profound desire to be in the world and the purity of the act led him to become a photographer. But Sergio Larraín nonetheless spent the greatest part of his existence in seclusion, practicing meditation, yoga, writing and drawing. He had left a brilliant body of work behind him, he had the wisdom to interrupt when it no longer brought him the freedom he expected. After an extended period of self-searching (though writing as well), he was to find himself in a state of voluntary deprivation.
