Photographers Carlos Rivera Segovia and Pablo Ortiz Monasterio met during a photobook workshop at the Valparaíso International Photography Festival in 2013. They discussed and analysed photobooks for several days, attempting to define the characteristics of those that become classics.
“Valparaíso”, the legendary volume of images from the 1950s and 1960s by Sergio Larraín, published in France in 1991, was a constant reference. Towards the end of the event, carried away by a shared enthusiasm, they decided to form a small, ephemeral collective in order to produce a book of photographs, taken by each one of them, in the emblematic Chilean port.
