Buenos Aires

I have returned for a long weekend in Buenos Aires and will post the pictures of this outing over the coming days. The city is absolutely great for street photography, offering so many different settings and a vibrant atmosphere. I plan to visit a lot more in the coming months and maybe work on a dedicated series. I took my Leica M8 and tiny 35mm Summicron IV for this trip. Indeed, I wanted a combo that would not attract any unwanted attention and represent too much of a loss if stolen (well, this is obviously said in relative terms). Buenos Aires remains one of the most dangerous city in South america and while one can perfectly shoot street photography there, some caution and common sense is needed.

I’ll also post an interview with fellow street photography Ova Hamer which I had the pleasure to shoot with on Saturday.
