During those 6 years at Clarin I stopped photographing completely. I cleaned my system: I was immersed in photography 24/7 but did not shoot anything. Then in 2002, due to the profound economic crisis in Argentina, I became an administrator for the downsizing of the paper and our department. It was time to leave.
I picked up my cameras again with the renewed hope that I could refocus my work and explore and develop my expressive tools but also abandoning the daily grind of the short term assignments and trying to develop new projects.
Tango was one of them. I tried to avoid the stereotypical images made for export and interpreted the passion and spirit of our national dance.
“Chasing the Dream”, was a vast project for the United Nations. The purpose of this work was to document the eight UN Millennium Development Goals. I did this by focusing on the lives of 8 young people in 8 countries to see how problems of planetary proportions affected the concrete lives of real persons.
¨Stories from the steppes” was a book on Patagonia and oil exploration.
