Rocío Azarloza was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She received her BA in Image and Sound Design from Universidad de Buenos Aires in 2011 and is currently pursuing her MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the Photography department.
Her work explores the built environment: the form and materials that compose it as well as the ideas that they embody.
It is through the manipulation of material that she attempts to challenge the expectations of what a photograph is. Working in photography as well as video and sculpture, she seeks to create images that are more than records of something in the world; they embody the questions that drive her projects.
