AN exhibition of photos taken in Argentina is on display at the Frankston Arts Centre.
Photographer Osvaldo Civetta was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He emigrated to Melbourne when he was 15.
At the invitation of a friend he returned to his country of birth, where he shot photographs of Indigenous Argentinian people. He is now displaying his work at the Arts Centre as part of an exhibition titled Roots, Raices.
“The exhibition was inspired through an invitation by friend and artist Jaime Torres, Argentine musician and world-renowned interpreter of charango, to visit his cultural centre in his native province of Jujuy, Argentina – rich in heritage and astonishing scenery,” Mr Civetta said.
“The theme of the exhibition is a look at the everyday lives in contrast with the modern world of the native people of Jujuy and Salta, Argentina.”
The exhibition is on at the Arts Centre’s Atrium Gallery until 16 April. Postcard photographs are on sale from $12 and large photographic prints from $90 to $300.
