As a young boy, Aldo Sessa (b. 1939, Argentina) studied painting and drawing at the De Ridder Atelier, worked at his father’s printing press, and frequented Lucio Fontana’s studio. The artist later specialized in graphic design, graphic arts, cinematography and photography. In 1957 Sessa joined the Foto Club Argentino, and in 1958 he began working as a free-lance photographer for the Buenos Aires newspaper La Nación. Beyond the artist’s participation in exhibitions at renowned museums and galleries in the United States, Europe, Latin America, he has published more than 40 books of his work on themes such as Buenos Aires, gaucho culture, tango, and New York City.
