Ayacucho

Ayacucho
1993/1993c
Silver print
unmounted
9-1/2 x 9-1/2 in. (241 x 241 mm)
Signed, dated and titled in ink on recto in margins. Fantozzi is a Peruvian photographer, who was born in 1953. He was a Fulbright scholar and student of Aaron Siskind at the Rhode Island School of Design, where he earned his MFA. He was already an excellent photographer when he left Peru, but his exposure to the New York art world added a new sophistication to his work. He has a eye for the bizarre which he frames rigorously. The act of photographing itself and slaughtered animals are leitmotifs in Fantozzi's work. His work is the collection of the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center of the University of Texas at Austin.
