MARGARITA GARCIA FAURE

Margarita García Faure

Fotografía: Gisela Volá

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in the autumn of 1977 and my footsteps have always followed those of the mountains, the winds, the rivers and the seas. My hands have looked at "hands that know" and my eyes have discovered that inmensity has no representation.
