Signed B/W Photograph Lake Titicaca, M. Algaze

Lot 0361 Details

Description
Mario Algaze (Cuban-American, b. 1947). Silver Gelatin Photograph. "Lago Puno". Ca. 2000. Purportedly signed on the verso. A lyrical view of Lago Puno (Lake Titicaca - western part of the lake likes within Puno Region of Peru) in the Andes on the border of Bolivia and Peru by contemporary Cuban-American photographer Mario Algaze - part of his Latin American panorama series. Award-winning Algaze left Cuba and relocated to Miami, Florida in 1960. The vibrant Latino culture of Miami inspired him to travel to Central and South America where he was a photojournalist for various national and international publications. Algaze studied art at Miami Dade College in the 1970s and has used his talent to explore his heritage as well as the lands and people of other cultures.

Retail pricing for Algaze's photographs from this series is approximately $3400 as framed.
