Valparaiso, published by Editions Hazan in 1991 is another of the major works that is nearly impossible to find. This beautifully produced title contains most of the photographs of his home country that we may be familiar with. Started in 1957 while traveling with Pablo Nerduda for Du Magazine (published in 1965), it was a project that Larrain would work on for several years. As reflected in the earlier vagabond street children series he originally established his voice with, Larrain challenges the edges of his frames creating new and dynamic compositions. Often choosing vantage points that mimic the viewpoints of the stray dogs that appear in the photos, Larrain wanders and observes the life of this port city. Things get interesting at night when the bars are full of sailors, dancers and desire.
Sergio Larrain began photographing the famous Chilean port in the 1950s but it was not until 1963 that he spent more time there, this time, in the company of the poet Pablo Neruda. The text and photographs in Valparaiso were published in the journal Du in 1966. But it had to wait until 1991 before it was published as a book, which has since gained a cult following. Not only did Sergio Larrain ceaselessly climb the narrow streets, the stairs, and the hills of this city frozen in time, but he also shed light on an entire bohemian lifestyle in the neighborhoods nearby the port, which then counted some one hundred brothels and cabarets. The result is a series of pictures that has become an essential reference in the work of this photographer who escapes categorization.
