Humo de alquimista / Juan Domingo Marinello.
"The corpus on which this book was worked covers more than thirty years and thousands of slides, photographs that have preserved desaturated colors of an authenticity spanning decades. Óscar is a perfectionist who has always enjoyed more the construction of his imaginaries than the achievement of a certain end. This book brings together many years of travel, observation and editing, a process that results in a capital and definitive work, a solid view of the author that manages to freeze slippery, elusive, almost ungraspable scenes; characters, streets and actions rescued from the smoke of time. They are random reincarnations of a Valparaíso that refuses to become a tourist scenario. They are not passive records: Óscar makes us perceive them as visual poems through which we reveal a mysterious atmosphere. His images are an intentional fragmentation that leads us to a totality by the path that marks its author" (HKB Translation) --Verso cover.
