Testimonio: Las semillas que la CAH sembró en 1975

Houston, May 2005

Dear María Inés Siccardi
Chairperson 2005, Casa Argentina de Houston,

It is no exaggeration to say that the grant I received from Casa Argentina de Houston in 1975 marked a turning point in my career.

Thanks to the generosity of Casa Argentina de Houston, I was able to spend more than a year traveling and photographing in Argentina and Latin America, giving me a unique opportunity to reconnect with cultures which had made a deep and lasting impression on me as a child.  The work I did during this period ultimately led to several other grants and commissions, among them a Fulbright scholarship for research into Latin American photohistory which I received in 2001.

At present, I am continuing my research into Latin American photohistory, focusing on Guatemala and Cuba.  I feel sure that none of this would have happened without the support of the Casa Argentina, and I am deeply grateful for their encouragement and support.
