This is the next image from my recent adventure to Antarctica via Buenos Aries. I went to photograph the light and the ice in the fabled Southern Continent. But on my way there and back I spent some time in this wonderful city of great beauty and tremendous contrasts. I was bowled over by vibrant faded beauty of this extraordinary place and will need to go back to take more photographs of this stunning Argentine city. Shot with Ilford HP5 with a very small and very battered SLR. Analouge really suits the nature of the place and the unobtrusive nature of the camera I was using allowed me to get up close and scratch away at the surface of what I was seeing.
I need to post these Argentine images before I get to the extensive portfolio of Antarctican images I have coming. They are to me the precursor and epilouge to my trip to the ice and almost as compelling.
