    Finding Beauty in the Ordinary in Belgrano, Buenos Aires

    We can’t emphasize the amount of photographic people, places and things in Buenos Aires. Living in the city, it’s easy to dismiss the most basic scenes as ordinary, boring, or banal. At Foto Ruta we believe that there is beauty in even the simplest of places. We set out to capture a bit of ordinary life in the Belgrano neighborhood focusing on one basic, every day thing—doors.

    While parts of Belgrano are particularly busy, if you walk a few blocks off the main strips you’ll find a little haven in this bustling city. The streets are quiet and lined with trees. There also happens to be an abundance of bored doormen.

    By using shadow, light and symmetry we were able to find something so incredibly stunning about each doorway we came across in Belgrano. Photography has a way of doing this—making you study the world a little differently.

    In our Foto Ruta Weekly Tours we try to help our participants see the streets of Buenos Aires and Santiago in a different light. We encourage participants to take something basic and create something beautiful. Each week we’re amazed at the results. But, I guess all it really takes is a closer look.
