“We have long heard that New York and Paris were the most photographed cities in the world. This is undoubtedly true, it was, anyway. We quickly deduced that they were the most photogenic. It is not certain. Now the city, every town, from the largest to the smallest, are both a concern and a revelator of contemporary societies; a reservoir in images that seems endless.

Coming from the South like Alberto García-Alix and its square photographs, or from the North, like Anders Petersen, favoring the rectangle and perceiving the local language in an abstract way, the major photographers confirm one thing: this city is a pretext, a pretext for photography. They both experienced Valparaíso, walked the same walks, but there’s no way we can make any confusion: their positions, their aesthetic choices remains unique.

Although they share a similar affection for the people, life, animals, signs, discovery, they are irreducibly different. But they have one thing in common: photography.”
