Milagros de la Torre

Lima, Perú| b.1965



Born in Lima, Peru. Lives and works in New York.

Milagros de la Torre has been working with the photographic medium since 1991. She studied Communication Sciences, University of Lima and received B.A. (Hons) in Photographic Arts, London College of Printing.

Her work emerges from a rigorous research process and a critical argumentation of the photographic apparatus. It examines issues associated with her Latin American background, which have attained global relevance today. Her images often project an eerie beauty and visual seduction that contrasts with the acute subject matter.
