Disparitions By Helen Zout

Publisher Aman Iman Publishing

ISBN 9791092727104

Idea Code 16626

Helen Zout was born in Argentina, and is known for producing photographic work that deals closely with social issues and mental health. Here she gathers pictures of disappeared victims of the last Argentinean military dictatorship (1976–1983). Zout assembled her own photographs together with existing documents, resulting in a photomontage about a sensitive time in the nation’s history that also poses visual questions about interpretation. Not intended as a historical document, the collection points to the invisible and to absence, to the emptiness that defines memory, and to the marks left on the survivors and families of victims by their disappearance. With a text by Pietsie Feenstra.
