Day One in Central Park, Buenos Aires

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

Mariana and Fabian getting ready to mount Yuyo's canvas in his studio in Central Park, Barracas, Buenos Aires.

…feeling nostalgic tonight. It’s almost midnight in Buenos Aires. I’m in Paris.

My cheeks are still chilled from the walk home along the frigid Canal St Martin. It’s hot and muggy down in BA and there will probably soon be a downpour.

One year ago today I watched a huge canvas being put onto an 11-by-3 meter frame in a studio in my neighborhood in Barracas, BA. Yuyo (Luis Felipe Noe) would soon start assembling his work for the Venice Biennale, a process I would continue photographing for three months in Argentina, plus another two weeks in Venice.

Today was day one.
