Game Over

Argentina, December 2011. Buenos Aires. Many photos, too many photos.

December 2023, I revisit my photos after the presidential election was won by Javier Milei, the man with the chainsaw.

Among these photos, I look for a link with the country’s painful history. For example, the one of a man facing an image (photo Bernardino Avila) of a demonstrator firing a slingshot, on display in the Plaza de Mayo, opposite the Casa Rosada, the Presidential Palace. And on this photo, someone has drawn the inscription “Game over” in black.

No, all bets are off, but we mustn’t forget history.

My series of images illustrates my memory of the city of tango, with its distinctive blue, yellow and red colors. But also, alas, that of disappearances, pain and anger.

In sorting through them, twelve years on, I’ve retained what preoccupied me more than the reflections on the buildings.
