    " Anyone needing a lesson in real life photography, need look no further then this photo stream. Take it slow, study each photo, and know that a master has taken some of the most mesmerizing images that I have ever seen. A life of work about life on this spinning globe we live on. Thanks, Marcelo, for this privelege.

    "What distinguishes my father's photography from the works of the by now widespread "photoshop virtuosos" of the digital age is not mere technical and aesthetic superiority but rather his lifelong concern for the human and ontological toll of life as a photographer. It is one thing, no doubt, to technically master a medium but quite another thing altogether to really live it and explore its implications for the human condition to the bitter end. In hindsight I now know that this observation has only become possible following my political and philosophical coming of age. My father once told me, in the context of his, at times adventurous and at times painful, years as a photojournalist that the hardest part was choosing when it was morally right for him to record history and when it was time to put the camera down and take part in history's making. I believe that this implicit understanding of the inherent problematic of photography in relation to its subjects and content has through the years strengthened the bond between my father's work and the difficult reality which gave rise to it. In a very important sense, his portraits are more than just portraits; they contain more than just the look in people's eyes. More importantly, his digital art is more than a clever and skillful combination of filters and effects but rather a continual testament to the feelings, lives and moods of peoples, places and ages long reduced to mere aesthetic and intellectual clichés. In short, my father's work seeks to reconstitute the bond in art between form and content; the bond that in recent years has so violently been severed by the photoshop virtuoso and the relativism and frivolity of the postmodern obsession with form."

    "Hacía tanto tiempo que no me sentaba con emoción a ver un "slideshow" en flickr. El set de la clínica psiquiátrica de Santiago es un curso completo de fotografía y un ejemplo de maestría de un gran artista. Siempre me había preguntado qué tiene Santiago que hace que en las venas de su gente exista un gen misterioso que los hace grandes fotógrafos...pero con el Maestro Montecino..ese gen esta en cada poro de su piel."

    "yo enmarcaria las fotos de marcelo en el contexto de los debates sobre un arte verdaderamente latinoamericano o util al pueblo que se producia en nuestro continente en los anios 60, 70. un debate cuyos resultados el gorilaje militar se encargo de destruir dejandonos a cambio el arte mercantil con el cual tenemos que luchar a diario hoy en dia. pero no seamos tan pesimistas, ya que hay obras que sobrevivieron a la quema. podemos ver "el Chacal de Nahueltoro", podemos ver el cine de Jorge Sanjines en Bolivia.... y podemos ver las fotos de Marcelo.
    son imagenes que los mismos fotografiados querrian colgar en sus casas, que bien visto es uno de los mayores reconocimientos a los que puede aspirar un fotografo."
