social documentary photographer
My name is Marcelo Argañaraz and I was born in Apostoles (Misiones) Argentina, dazzled for years by the "magic" of a photography laboratory, where my self-taught training begins. In love with travelling, people and images ... I try, through them, to show simple stories that were recorded in my memory and in my camera, to return to those sensations every time I remember them or observe them ... Free-lance in the world of images, currently, along with photo-reportage, fashion, portrait, product and personal projects; I collaborate with social organizations, fashion magazines and lifestyle (travel photography).
