El blanco más doctrinario 
by Julio Fuks

"The photographic series “El blanco más doctrinario” revolves around the figure of the Creole duel. In literature, the duel has always precipitated the image of the double. In this photo essay, literature is evoked and possessed. 
The challenge is to explore forms that are pertinent to an adequate aesthetics, one that is consistent with an identity of the Pampas."  -Julio Fuks
