After stops in Paris, Madrid and New York, the exhibition Fotolivros latino-americanos is now on view at the Institut Moreira Salles in Rio de Janeiro. The focus is Latin-American photography books since the 1920's, says curator Horacio Fernandez, with 66 books, 120 photographs and a dozen videos made using images of the books on display, all of which provide an overview of the aesthetic, social and cultural life of Latin America up to the present day. Only works in whose creation the artists took a direct part have been selected, such as Horacio Coppola, Manuel Álvarez Bravo and Miguel Rio Branco . Fotolivros latino-americanos is part of a project begun in 2007. An eponymous book was published by Aperture in North America, Cosac Naify in Brazil, RM in Mexico, and Images en Manœuvre in France.
