Buenos Aires Conurbano on Flickr

January 18, 2010

I’m an enthusiastic user of Flickr [and other social media]. I use it to scout locations, research destinations, and just in general be inspired by others’ work. Here’s a few photographs from the outskirts of Buenos Aires (ie. the Conurbano) that I’ve found recently in my browsing:

For a region with a population of 10 million, there’s hardly any photographs of the conurbano. A search on Flickr reveals a less than 400 photos. I’m interested in the place precisely because no one thinks it worthy to photograph. Also worth checking out is the group sud-sub-urb which describes itself as latinamerican suburban aesthetic.
