Estefanía Araujo is Argentine but lives in England. She is currently pursuing a Master of Visual Arts at the Camberwell College of Arts in London. During her stay with us she sought to explore memory and identity through images of old photographs of her family in Argentina. Trained in photography, she has been working with photographs, letters and texts from her family that she has collected over the years and has created new images combining different techniques.
The creative process is from a trip to the past, to an analysis of our roots, of the stories that were told to us as children and formed our imaginary and what we are today. Photography being the medium with which I am most familiar and the one I studied for years, is the concept of the photographic image and the use of photographic archives in the plastic arts; as well as the use of the private image taken to a public context, something that interests me and a very important theoretical part behind my projects.
