Urban Mirrors - A different way to see Buenos Aires

These urban photographs portray emblematic sites of its fifteen districts of Buenos Aires. Sergio Castiglione’s work shows that when we walk around Buenos Aires –and probably around every city– we only observe the urban space that is at the height of our eyes, or even lower down. However, his photographs teach us another way to look. They allow us to discover buildings and typical places of the capital of Argentina through reflections on the water of lakes, fountains and even puddles.

Urban Mirrors is an invitation to be a part of this new perspective, to get rid of the rational way to see the city. Thus, we might be able to discern the delicate web that connects what is gone, what could have been and what may still possibly be: the warp of being in the world.
