Italian photographer Stefano Cento recently spent several years in Buenos Aires producing several bodies of work. Urban Luna Park – May 25th contains nocturnal photographs taken under the May 25th freeway. If you’ve been to Buenos Aires you have almost certainly been on it as it’s the route in from the airport.
I often cross paths with the autopista in my wanderings around Flores and Boedo, looking for the perfect Chalet. The area beneath it is quite heavily utilized, frequently and oddly, by soccer clubs.
Tabula Rasa is another work by Cento. It shows aerial views of Buenos Aires where the streets have been removed digitally, leaving a jumble of patios and medianera walls.
That’s the same freeway depicted in Urban Luna Park, but from above. Be sure to click thru to the Tabula Rasa series. WordPress is munching the jpegs in a weird way.
