"Gustavo, during his cosmopolitan wanderings during the 90s, never left his Leica, a camera recommended by the great Argentine photographer Aldo Sessa, which he sometimes attended during his studies in literature and art history in Buenos Aires. This teaches him to choose his lights as well as his subjects."
Gustavo Urruty was born in 1966 in the Argentinian town of Chascomùs. Did his first studies until he became an Honorary Bachelor at the Cristo Rey Institute in Lezama. Painted since childhood. At the age of 11, he won the school drawing competition and took painting lessons. Student at the University of Philosophy and Letters of Buenos Aires (UBA), student of Letters and History of Art. At the age of 20, he met the famous Argentinian photographer Aldo Sessa, whose pupil he became. Since 1990 he has been resident in Paris. He became a top model for the prestigious fashion designers of the time and the model for great fashion photographers. He started his “Photographic Intimate Notebooks” from that moment, with Leica 3, a legendary camera from the 1950s until today. His sensitive approach to the subjects he describes during his discoveries, walks and travels, makes his intimate photographs a notebook with universal resonance. At the same time he studied the nude, at the Montparnasse workshops in 1994. He inaugurated his series of "Papers Works" in 1995, with his "Abstract Pastels", followed by the series "Elements", then the "Pages qui Volent", in technique mixed with poems and writings, then “Les Poubelles”, a series of recycled paper, cardboard and paper bags. At the end of 1999, he began the series of "Newspapers" creations of works produced with newspapers from all over the world.
