The work of the great photographer from Rosario, Graciela Sacco, deals with daily battles of the human being in the contemporary world in order to find a place, and to achieve this she uses new means, techniques and very original materials. This book presents different periods of her works and it is divided in two parts. The first one gathers a selection and the staging of her works during the 2014 exposition at Hotel de Inmigrantes. The second part can be read in an autonomous way, following a chronological order, or as a dialogue with the first part according to the system of zooms/flashbacks that are shown as signals at the margins and are an invitation to play with the book. An essay by the author, critical texts and a detailed biography enrich its content even more.

"There, in that solitude, in that desert of hay and stone, in that isolated, austere, rigorous, but at the same time magical and beautiful place, I would find that I was photographing reflections of my own existence, questions on the human condition and questions about myself. These were the signs of a personal cosmogony". Cristina Fraire
