  • 费德里科·埃斯托尔与玻利维亚非政府组织Hormigón Armado相关的六十位擦鞋工共同创作了《闪耀的英雄》的故事脚本。费德里科·埃斯托尔发表的这篇摄影文章,意在抗议这个职业所受到的社会歧视。照片中展示了戴着面具的擦鞋工。他们戴面具是为了掩盖其身份,而集体匿名也是他们对社会排挤的默然反抗。
      费德里科·埃斯托尔目前担任圣·何塞·佛托艺术节(San Jose Foto festival)的艺术总监,为蒙得维的亚摄影俱乐部做宣传工作,同时也是El Ministerio Ediciones出版社的编辑。他的作品曾在纽约光圈基金会、埃斯特角城阿丘加里基金会、布宜诺斯艾利斯弗拉摄影博物馆(FOLA)、蒙得维的亚当代艺术空间、罗马当代艺术博物馆、布拉加GNration等地展出。
      Federico Estol, together with sixty shoe shiners associated with the Bolivian NGO Hormigón Armado, created the story script for Shine Heroes. Federico Estol published this photo essay with the intention of protesting against the social discrimination to which this profession is subjected. The photographs show shoe shiners wearing masks. They wear the masks to conceal their identity, and their collective anonymity is a tacit rebellion against social exclusion.
      Federico Estol is currently the artistic director of the San Jose Foto festival, does promotional work for the Montevideo Photo Club and is the editor of El Ministerio Ediciones. His work has been exhibited at the Aperture Foundation in New York, the Fondazione Achugari in Punta del Este, the Fola Museum of Photography (FOLA) in Buenos Aires, the Espacio de Arte Contemporaneo de Montevideo, the Museo d'Arte Contemporaneo di Roma and GNration Braga.
