Mi Vida, Mi Amor: Photography by Argentina’s Eduardo Blidner

“Death does not exist. We die when we are forgotten”
Eduardo Blidner 1959 – 2015

Eduardo Blidner is arguably one of the most gifted photographers to arise from Buenos Aries, Argentina in the 21st Century. He is a story-teller one frame at a time. His work rises from his love for his country and it’s culture and people. Eduardo explored life through his camera lens. His images are intimate, romantic, and often revealing something that is or was taboo.

Eduardo created his images with a Leica camera. (Leica co-sponsored the Tango exhibit) When photographing a stage performance once, an older lady siting in front of him suggested he use a Leica camera because the shutter makes little sound. That began his love for the camera. Over the years Eduardo worked tirelessly in the darkroom creating his black and white images. He loved to tone and try different photographic papers for various affects. Eduardo approached his work in series, concentrating his efforts on the current series until he had enough work to tell his story that would exhibit in a solo show. Mi Vida, Mi Amor features photographs from five bodies of work by Eduardo Blidner.
