Imagen Invertida Inverted Image is a space dedicated exclusively to chemical, alternative and experimental photography.
It has an educational center where it offers workshops on photo-chemical techniques and processes, language and poetry, and practical laboratory experiments; and a research core that functions as a space for knowledge, study, reflection and analysis around the image and its creation through the dissemination of texts, notes, quotes, talks, debates and meetings with the community.
The atelier is directed by Nahuel Souto.
