Jorge Uzon was born in Chile and studied photography at the Escuela de Altos Estudios de la Comunicación in Santiago before leaving the country to work as a photojournalist in Mexico and Central America. He has been included in Agence France-Presse's compilations of best photographs numerous times. He is now a recipient of an Ontario Arts Council grant to document the disappearing world of the Chilean gaucho. In this book he brings his skill very close to home, photographing his own baby from the moment of birth until he takes his first steps. He lives with his family in Toronto.
