Artist's Description

La Recoleta is Buenos Aires most famous cemetary. It’s like a small city of remarkable mausoleums, statues and graves enclosed within high brick walls, in the trendy neighbourhood of Recoleta. Only the most famous, influencial or powerful of Argentina’s dead are buried here. For example, the remains of Evita Peron are interred in Recoleta but her husband, Juan Peron (former president of Argentina) rests in Chacarita cemetary.

I like to wander around the cemetery taking photos, I always seem to find something new and interesting to photograph. It suits a moody style of black and white photography. I found this angel on my last trip to Recoleta. I knew it would look beautiful in sepa because of the contrast between the white angel and the dark granite wall.
