The Argentine gallery Studio 488 will present until March 22 the exhibition Lila, the story of a little girl told by the photographer Maximiliano Matayoshi. We see Lila’s life as a little girl, as she plays, studies and pedals her bike down dirt roads. We discover her private live, her house, her family and her horses. The photographer has always known Lila. He was there for her first steps, her first laugh, her first fall. And already Lila no longer looks like a little girl. She’s almost a woman. With this project, Matayoshi questions the ephemeral, elusive nature of childhood, which is over all too quickly.
