I have started this week a one month long period of travels in Argentina. Unluckily, the goal of these trips is work, not street photography. Still, I hope to get some free time to shoot some. Or at last, take a few snaps from the cars I’ll spend most of my time in, like last Friday in Buenos Aires. (click on picture for high res)

I can’t remember of any communist iconology depicting a smiling subject. Would have a little bit less of stiffness  made the ideology work ? (click on picture for high res)

By looking at the Saturday wanderers and surrounding buildings, one could almost be mislead and think this is a common street in Europe. Nevertheless, the flags are there to remind us that we are in the Southern hemisphere, in the heart of Rosario. Argentina is Europe’s most look alike cousin, but also the farthest.  (click on picture for high res)

The New York times published last week a very good interview about Henri Cartier-Bresson by journalist Sheila Turner Seed. I thought one of the questions would make a great poll (with a slight tweak). Answer below and then head to the interview to read Henri’s own answer to that question.

Poll #17
Are good street photographers good from the start ?

Last Thursday, Argentina celebrated its Day of the Flag (one of the many  Holidays in this country). The main festivities took place in Rosario, at a place called the Flag Monument. It is indeed here that the first flag of Argentina was raised in 1812 by General Belgrano. Not easy to give a street photography twist to such a gigantic structure.  (click on picture for high res)
