New routines in El Bolsón

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

Guille, Puti, Clyde and I have been in El Bolsón, in the mountains of Patagonia, for two weeks now, and routines are developing. For example, every morning I take Clyde for a walk around a large “block” of undeveloped wetland. We stand out because people who live here generally don’t walk their dogs, they just [...]

The Symbolism of Hugo Chávez

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

The death of Hugo Chávez brings a more long term perspective to contemporary Latin American politics. Sure this man wielded a big ego that at times did more harm than good, but his rise in Venezuela marked the beginning of a grand shift in the power structures in practically every Latin American country. Today no [...]

Vos Sos Bienvenido, El Graffiti

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

Another puzzling ad from the conservative mayor of Buenos Aires (other ad here). One would expect the administration responsible for such tight control over the use of city plazas and the presence of homeless people, to be less welcoming to graffiti.

Once Libre

Monday, May 30th, 2011

As an artist transplanted from New York, I came to Buenos Aires trying to connect with a community of other artists. To collaborate, commiserate, to evolve and hopefully to show work. From my involvement with two related groups, Once Libre and Articultores, I have begun to achieve all of this. However, on May 17 this [...]

Vos sos bienvenido, al infierno

Sunday, May 29th, 2011

Cartel de Mauricio Macri para jefe de gobierno de la ciudad de Buenos Aires. La traducción de la remera dice “Bienvenidos al Infierno.” This is a photo I snapped of a campaign poster for the re-election of the current mayor of the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Mauricio Macri is a conservative, pro-big business politician [...]

El racismo viene de cualquier lado

Friday, May 13th, 2011

Aveces me sorprende cuando veo el racismo de gente o fuentes que considero progresivos, inteligentes, y con mientes abiertas. En Argentina hay un diario, Pagina 12, que se considera de los grandes diarios argentinos lo mas progresivo, mas de la izquierda socialmente y políticamente.  Además publica un suplemento cada viernes dedicado a la comunidad homosexual, [...]

Barack Obama & Las Madres

Friday, September 24th, 2010

President Brarack Obama mentions “The Mothers of Plaza de Mayo” in his address to the UN. As an example of how much more powerful my birth country is to my adopted country, those few words made headlines here and were also the subject of debate on television. When they lunched together, the Argentine President thanked [...]

Thrown Out

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

This morning I took my dog Clyde to a plaza nearby for his morning walk. While there, there was an operation in progress to “clean up” encampments of cartoneros living under the freeway adjacent to the plaza. The cartoneros have a big presence in Buenos Aires. The name comes from the word “carton,” or cardboard. [...]

Dulce de Leche vs. Dulce de Leche

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

In Argentina, dulce de leche is so common, you can buy it in any store, and usually have a choice of so many brands and styles, that can leave the indecisive shopper dizzy. Besides the common brands, there are gourmet brands, artisan brands, and homemade. I would like to try making it sometime (I hear [...]
