Located in a flat in the famous Corrientes Avenue in Buenos Aires, for more than 30 years ""Luisita Photo Studio"" portrayed hundreds of celebrities of the Argentinian show business.Starting in the 60's, Luisita -the shy and sensitive woman behind the camera- found the way to position herself in a field of art dominated by men. Together with her two inseparable sisters, they performed a great labor of craft work that -although shadowed by technology- today has a new meaning.More than 25,000 unpublished photos from the Argentinian pop culture open up in front of our eyes, and, together with them, the Escarria sisters spirit that remains intact.
