Guillermo Srodek-Hart went to Argentina and sought out the most authentic old stores that he could find, those that seem to operate on a different time and remain so very authentic. He describes the scenes that he captures: "Many times I am asked, "Why aren't there any people in your photographs?" My answer is "Look closely, they are all over the place." My photographs are filled with traces of human presence: objects, furniture, stuff hanging from the walls, accumulations on display. They speak to me of the invisible, that which can't be seen but is there, stories to be imagined, and, ultimately, the acknowledgement of our own transience in this world."
