“INTIMATE CONCRETE: Or the call of my fetish object, was not generated from a preconceived idea, neither from a literal line of thought. It was generated from an obsession if we can call in that way to an aesthetic fixation caused by an aleatory novelty: an ordinary object that became extraordinary.”
Independent Chilean photographer and visual artist, Luna Milo has now returned to Santiago, Chile, after 10 years of living abroad. Her photography, writing, and editorial work has been published in the United States, Canada, Chile, Mexico and Europe.

Luna Milo was honored with The Merit Award by B&W Magazine (USA) for Documentary and Fine Art Photography and featured in the Special Issue: Single Image Contest Awards. Her photographic work was selected to take part in the VI Biennale of Photojournalism of Mexico, participating in different exhibitions that took place in that country. This documentary project was included in the Iberoamerican Forum Book of Photojournalism. Currently, Luna Milo is also working as a writer, for Arte al Límite Magazine (Chile), for the printed and bilingual edition, writing and publishing specialized articles about aesthetic and contemporary art, and interviewing outstanding Chilean and international artists as well.
