About Judith Rodríguez
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina where I have lived most of my life. I have always been interested in the humanities and arts. I am a psychoanalyst and also studied Literature at Buenos Aires University. I have written poetry and short stories that won some awards.
In 2009, when I was returning home from a trip to Paris, I realized that I not only did not want to leave that beloved city, but I decided not to lose my amazed eyes, that had gone through bridges, little winding streets, as foreigners or as just-born eyes. I returned to my city, Buenos Aires, wanting to look around as if I had never seen anything. That is where I met photography.
My intention is to make my camera mix with my eyes, with my way of seeing,the singularity of common people, who are really never so common, and life in the streets. Reflections, special one-second expressions, geometric juxtapositions of shadows, lights, people, like kaleidoscopes. A gaze between two human beings who pass in the street and perhaps will never meet again.
I attended a workshop with Alberto García Alix in Valparaiso , Chile for a week ( FIFV 2015) and took part in an exhibit curated by him in Spanish Cultural Center in Santiago de Chile in 2015
I also atended workshops with Adriana Lestido (2014, 2015, 2016) , Alberto Glodenstein, and Antoine D'Agata in Paraty, Brazil in 2015. I exhibited my work in Buenos Aires, Mendoza and Salta (Argentina) and in USA,Spain, Chile and France
