Buenos Aires paradigmático / Paradigmatic Buenos Aires

La cantidad y variedad de personajes que habitan y transitan las calles de Buenos Aires es impresionante. Hay situaciones allí dónde uno quiera encontrarlas cuando se camina despabilado -algo que no ocurre todos los días-. No es menor la cantidad de "colores" que hablan de inmigración y emigración a cada paso, todos "expulsados" por igual. A veces, el humor mezclado con semejante bestiario puede jugarnos buenas pasadas a los que intentamos forzar el quiebre del cliché... otros, desechan el "error" por no resistir la esclavitud de lo obvio. Una vuelta de tuerca para jugar con el "documento"... incluso para que ciertas cosas no duelan tanto. Retratar la miseria desde lo miserable, es obvio. Dejar de mostrarla, indigno. Tremendo paradigma ético y estético, no? Es que eso es Buenos Aires.

The amount and variety of personages who inhabit and walk the streets of Buenos Aires are impressive. There are situations there where we wants to find them when we are walking "open mind". The amount of “colours” we can find is not smaller and speaks us about immigration and emigration. All “expelled people” at a time. Sometimes, an humoristic point of view mixed with that "human collection" can make a good frame to who who tries to break the photo-cliche... others, reject the “error” in the picture because  they do not resist the slavery of the obvious. There are other ways to "play" with the document so that certain realities do not hurt so much. To portray the misery from a miserable point of view, is the obvious thing. Not to show it is to be unworthy. Tremendous ethical and aesthetic paradigm, isn´t it? That paradigm is Buenos Aires.

  2. We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

    The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
