The first city photographs taken in Chile, initially by foreign travelers, could be read as the spatial design of a sociopolitical strategy. The analysis proposed in this article tries to deal with the neutrality of the photographic technique by highlighting the priority of sight that captures and designs the object within the symbolic struggles of the Nation-state. In this regard, photography allows disseminating a flexible hegemony. Its staging proposes a visual and architectonical hierarchy in the illuminated and solemn territories where authority and values lie down. Modernization imposes new optical anatomies to a city that rises from the colonial past to receive progress with their work disciplines and aesthetic seductions.

Palabras clave : Photography; City; Visuality; Space; Order.
