Click to preview ARGENTINE ROAD BOOK photo book

This book is about what I see at the roadside just outside Buenos Aires. Garages, repair shops, meat, vegetables, anything and everything, everyday, ordinary, normal. Things we all need, getting a car tyre changed, fuel for the barbie, chicken, eggs, doors, windows....

Rosebank says

Worth buying for the cover alone, well done B and so says my Argentinian work colleague Karina. Amazing to see loads of shops with their own individuality. No local planning guidelines here and hardly a branded chain store to be seen. A nicely put together set of photographs.
