REYERO, Alejandra e SUDAR KLAPPENBACH, Luciana. Modernity imaginaries in Chaco Province photography: Argentina 1900-1978. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2011, n.504, pp. 73-93. ISSN 0718-0462. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-04622011000200005.
The study undertakes the incidence that photographic images of three authors - Juan Bautista Simoni, Pablo Boschetti and Pedro Luis Raota - had in the shaping of modernity imaginaries in Chaco Province, Argentina between 1900 and 1978. It analyses on the one hand, the function and meaning of these images as cultural expressions of the modernization process in Argentina, and its regional and national memory anchorage on the other. The link between photography, imaginary, and memory allows us to identify some of the tensions, conflicts, utopias and social transformations, both material and cultural, of Chaco Province in the 20th Century. For that we take as historiographic criteria the complementarities in the relationship between photographic images / regional cultural history, as a perspective guiding the methodological model we propose by which the meaning of the mentioned photographic productions is investigated.
