    Anatole Saderman is one of the photographers that represent modern photography in Argentina. He was involved in the founding of the artistic group La Carpeta de los Diez (The Folder of the Ten) in 1953.
    Saderman was born in Moscow in 1904, into a wealthy family who left their native Russia after the Bolshevik revolution. Searching for a new place to live, the Sadermans passed through Minsk, Vilnius and Lodz, eventually settling in Berlin. Anatole Saderman continued his studies at a Russian community school. But the deteriorating situation in Germany forced the family to flee once more. This time, following in the footsteps of an older brother who had settled in Paraguay, the Sadermans arrived in America in 1926 on board the SS Cap Polonio. They disembarked in Montevideo. Saderman brought with him a camera that his father had bought him before he left Europe. In Montevideo, he met the Russian photographer Nicolás Yarovoff, who helped him deepen his knowledge of photography. Later on, he joined his family in Paraguay. After some time back in Montevideo, where he worked with Yarovoff, Saderman decided to move to Buenos Aires. In 1932, he worked at the Estudio Van Dick, located at the intersection of Avenida Rivadavia and Avenida Medrano. Two years later, he had his own studio, at Avenida Callao 1066. There he worked and lived with his family until 1939. That same year, he moved to Calle Lavalle 547, between Florida and San Martin. He lived there for more than twenty years. After a stay in Rome, he settled at the intersection of Calle San Martin with Calle Tucumán until 1975.
    Known as a photographer portraitist, Anatole Saderman was a co-founder of the Photo Club Buenos Aires, the Argentine Photo Club and the Association of Professional Photographers of Argentina.
