Harry loves Buenos Aires. Just give him an excuse to go there. In many ways Buenos Aires is a city lost in time. In the late 1800's and early 1900's it was known as the Paris of the Western Hemisphere. During that period it was a city known for its fantastic wealth and sophistication. It's Beaux Artes archi- tecture, magnificent boulevards and ro- mantic charm were legendary throughout the world and let’s not forget the world renowned Argentine beef from the Pampas. ese photographs are a testament to the spirit of that time. But instead of sweeping panoramas, you get the feeling that you are a witness to that time. ere is an intimacy to these photographs that sucks you in. You are in the cafe, you are at the table that a man sat every day for most of his adult life. is cafe made sure that you remembered him. ese are the pensioners, the waiters, the bakers. is is not the travelogue photos in a slick glossy magazine; you are there. 18 PORTFOLIO MAGAZINE
