European Month of Photography Berlin 2016

 

In occasion of the European Month of Photography, GJS is proud to present the whole project “HERIDAS” by ALFREDO SRUR for the first time in Europe in a temporary POP-UP Gallery in Berlin.
Alfredo Srur’s Heridas presents a documentation of the social dynamics of the subculture in the outskirts of Buenos Aires. In 2002 Srur was invited by a human rights activist to visit the neighborhood of San Fernando, 30 km away from the city center. There, on February 6th 1999, a 17 years old boy was murdered by the police inside his house. The kid was known as “El Frente Vital”, and he was praised for being an outlaw that turned his awareness of social justice into action by helping the poor.
Suddenly immersed in a cultural environment completely alien to him, Srur decided to spend the next 12 years trying to understand the practices and social codes
that rule the local community. Carlos, Vital’s best friend and the protagonist of this series, is the photographer’s alter ego. He invited Srur to become part of his world and to experience life through his eyes. Srur’s photographs explore the complex reality of people living on the edge of society, in an attempt to demystify the common assumptions about marginality. Heridas is the result of an encounter between two sides of Argentinian society that were never supposed to come together.
