The “disappeared,” the people abducted, murdered, and secretly buried during state-sponsored political upheaval, are ever-present in such countries as Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay. Absence, when it refers to that evanescent place left violently empty in your family history, is really a sort of invisible presence. Argentinian photographer Gustavo Germano examines this physical and psychological state in this exhibition. He pairs family images taken during dictatorships in South American countries with recreated photographs that capture the members’ absence.The resulting lacunae are filled with curiosity, rage, memory, and grief.
