In 1974, the newspaper for whom she worked, asked Sara Facio to make a group of Photos about the death of President Perón.
Sara Facio wasn’t involve with the Peronismo, but she was very sensitive for the impact the death of Peron hat been made in the people.
The pictures of “Funerales del Presidente Perón” are a memory and a mirror of the country, its society and its conflicts.
