Is it possible to synthesize the soul of a city through photographs of its buildings? The work of Michele Molinari heads in that direction, overlooking the Buenos Aires of historic monuments and focusing on the common dwellings that stud the skyline of the porteña city. They are boundary lines by day and by night, suburban intersections trying to spur on the vertical expansion of the city. Molinari goes to go back to the same places after a period of time to crystalize the changes and witness the urban fabric. CABA is about what I like the most in Buenos Aires: light, architecture, people.
