STORIES Guillermo Srodek-Hart
The stunning images in this collection by Argentinian photographer Guillermo Srodek-Hart tell captivating stories of the country’s rural commercial establishments. Located in the rural areas outside of bustling Buenos Aires, the commercial establishments—butcheries, bakeries, bars, repair shops, garages, dry cleaners—depicted in this collection by photographer Guillermo Srodek-Hart appear steeped in history, and are packed with details dripping with color. Throughout the collection hangs an air of abandonment, of time passing, or perhaps stopping. Whether or not that is true, Srodek-Hart has memorialized a culture worlds apart from the city that lies a short distance away. The exhibit at Architekturgalerie Munich, supported by Prestel Verlag and Kuckei + Kuckei Galerie Berlin, shows a selction of his works recently published in his book “Stories” (Prestel Verlag), with a foreword by Anne Tucker.
