Mariano Brizzola

June 6, 2012

Severral of my photo-friends in Buenos Aires good me hooked on this Facebook group called Solo Analogas which is Spanish for “Film Only” (roughly speaking). Through the group, I recently discovered the work of Argentine Mariano Brizzola. Working with a 35mm camera, Brizzola’s pictures have a nostalgic feel. I’m not sure you could get away with this in the US anymore, but Argentina (and even more so, Uruguay) really still looks like this.

Brizzola’s website redirects to his flickr page, which somehow seems appropriate. He eschews the modern obsession of organizing his photos into “projects”. Each one is its own, delightful, thing. Also check out this interview (in Spanish) on the Uruguayan website AKA.
