Marcos Lopez is one of the best known and most successful contemporary photographers in Argentina. The style of his best known works reminds me of David LaChapelle; big, colorful, over-the-top tableaux of iconic imagery in Latin America. I recently rediscovered his Urban Landscapes series. For this he simply went out into the suburbs of Buenos Aires and his native Santa Fe province and photographed stuff he found. Nuestra Mirada has a good interview with Lopez [in English]. My thanks to Sergio Miranda for reminding me of this series.
