As annual inflation exceeds 100 percent, Argentina’s economic paradox is revealed in Dead Cow Rising by Andreas Billman. Through Vaca Muerta’s striking oil and gas-rich landscapes, Billman explores the nation’s undeniable but controversial potential as a major energy exporter. However, this promise is countered by the harsh reality of Argentina’s rising inflation.

Billman uses a unique narrative device: the title of each picture reflects the inflation rate from the first picture, effectively using inflation rates as page numbers. Looking visually at Argentina’s history, each turn of the page marks a significant increase, starting at 0% and culminating in a staggering 110% a year later. The visual narrative of Dead Cow Rising captures the complexity of Argentina’s journey, where economic potential and reality collide.
