Country of origin: Argentina
In which Residency Program(s) did you participate?
What led you to participate in the Summer Residency Program?
I had just quit my full time job at an advertising agency (because I felt like my brain was slowly decaying), and was returning to NYC from a six month trip to Argentina. I decided to sign up for the Summer Residency to re-orient myself. It was a way to come back and hit the ground running.
What was the best part of your experience at SVA?
Being able to concentrate on what I was doing and what I wanted to do every single day was invaluable. Being fully focused.
How did the Residency Program contribute to your development as a professional artist?
The Summer Residency Program was a kick start to my career. I was able to mentally process all the work I’d been doing. Having the opinion of the community of residents and professors was a huge help in that process.
What's going on in your studio now?
I just shot the lookbook for Woolrich’s new line, Woolrich White. I’ve been photographing friends and strangers for an Instagram-based portrait project, which you can follow @quesofrito or by using the hashtag #IGPORTRAITPROJECT. Other than that, just business as usual! Continuing to work on Manual for Speed and Yonder Journal.
