About Sergio Purtell

Sergio Purtell creates lush silver gelatin prints inspired by people and landscapes, including those experienced during his travels across Chile, from urban Santiago to the sweeping plains of Patagonia. Since moving to the U.S., where he studied with leading photographers and printers at RISD and Yale, he has turned his lens on the architectural and social landscapes of the city, capturing the process of gentrification, abandonment, and displacement as it happens. In addition to his own artistic practice, Purtell is a well-respected printer whose first job was printing for the Walker Evans estate. Today he is the owner of the Black and White on White printing studio in Brooklyn.

Chilean , b. 1955
