Paz ERRÀZURIZ began taking photographs in the 1970s - during the Pinochet dictatorship.... In the following decades she made numerous trips to document the landscape & people of her homeland. During the dictatorship, she frequently violated regulations imposed by the military regime, daring to visit underground brothels, asylums, mental institutions, and boxing clubs - all places where women were not welcome. She became known for spending months or years in a particular community, building trust and carefully studying the social structures.
