Recently I had the pleasure of hanging out with Argentine photographer Norberto Salerno and wandering around Ciudadela together taking pictures. Salerno teaches at Centro Cultural Rojas and Universidad de Morón. He doesn’t have a website but ArteMundo has his series Urbanos from the 1990s. He also has a flickr account which contains more recent digital photos and also the beautiful corner featured above.

Salerno is also an avid collector of vintage cameras, especially ones made in Argentina, which he continues to use. Using old, cheap cameras is not merely an aesthetic choice. The suburbs of Buenos Aires can be dangerous. Better to lose a plastic camera  latest dSLR.
