Peruvian born photographer Milagros de la Torre (born 1965) has worked for over 15 years on this series, which explores the overlap between photography and the darker side of human nature, particularly in the criminal underworld and in the suggestive use of enigmatic objects. Drawing on photographic compositional techniques such as serialization, decontextualization, classification and defocus, she exposes the power of photographic rhetoric to frame and prejudice our vision. De la Torre is a receipient of the 2011 Guggenheim Fellowship Award in Photography. ENGLISH AND SPANISH TEXTS.
