Murals and Street Art of Buenos Aires

[click to enlarge] Buenos Aires is a paradise for street art enthusiasts and artists alike. One of the reasons is that unlike most large world cities it has an open and relatively unrestricted approach to urban art. This means that abandoned and derelict as well as occupied buildings can be used as art spaces as long as owners give their permission. On a recent long weekend visit to Buenos Aires I decided to join a guided street art tour instead […]

Rustic ARTitecture

I arrived in South America 3 weeks ago and spent 5 days in Buenos Aires. I got these shots with my Film SLR and then as usual I had to wait for them to be developed. I might take most of my future shots with my Digital SLR as it has become increasingly difficult (and expensive) to get film processed, no matter where you are in the world. – Jean-Jacques ** Photography by Jean-Jacques M. with Pentax P30T Film SLR […]

I could just take a stroll up to the local Dart station and […]
