Article:

This paper discusses a selection of the work of Luis Fernando Rojas, arguably Chile’s most important illustrator and illustrated reporter between 1875-1890; who depicted not only what was happening in Chile, but also international events. At the time, photography was used for portrait work or landscapes, and rarely applied to daily life, so the drawings were the way to communicate. It seems paradoxical that the father of the cutting-edge technique of lithogra-phy in Chile would see himself directly affected by technological innovation and the moderni-sation of publishing, a process that would eventually leave him obsolete and forgotten.
