Rueda Photos, Argentina

This is a photographic-documentary work about femicides in Argentina that we started in 2017 and is still in progress. When we began to work on this topic, we decided to look at the uncomfortable, to put the focus on the femicide, and on the patriarchal framework in which we live where male violence nests and that in its highest degree of expression comes to kill a woman because of her condition as such.

Investigating their stories and running the superficial fabrics of each case, to enable questions that help us break with pre-established constructions of analysis.

Feminicides are news, they appear every day in the media. Generally the journalistic treatment lacks a gender perspective and the victim is revictimized again and again.
