Photographer Marcos López has been celebrated internationally for his "Pop Latina" take on his native Argentina, in which the country is portrayed as "a painted cardboard shopping center that flutters in the Patagonian winds." This survey collects all of his work, from the 1970s to the present, tracking his abrupt change to color photography and his recent documentary projects.

The resulting pictures both appeal and appall.
