Love the knotted fringe. :-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:53 AM) : 

Being form Argentina I can tell you that most likely those macrame curtains were old bedsheets or towels handmade by some grandmother...
I have a few of those myself...with my great-grandmothers initials embroidered in pearl grey....those were the days!
BTW apologies for that stupid interview done by OHLALA! Made me cringe....

Pictures are beautiful !



Blogger Eryl said ... (10:12 AM) : 

Oh! the stories these tell: about themselves, as subjects in their own right and objects in relation to unseen parties. And, more interestingly for me at least, about the (semi-seen) person who picked them out.

Blogger beths said ... (10:46 AM) : 

Fascinating & beautiful theme. Your photos in this vein really reward the viewer.


Anonymous elxoxodemiprima said ... (10:50 AM) : 

I can appreciate a soft evolution in your work yet here you have to excuse me for my ignorance: what is that about?
hyper realism? deconstructivism? post-structuralism?symetry/assymetry? equilibriun?
the first picture send me some kind of message, a romantic one.
But on the 2nd I am clueless.
some light,please?


Anonymous Ian Carruthers said ... (10:54 AM) : 

Totally, totally love these. How's the "organic" with the industrial. A favorite of mine. ;)

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:47 PM) : 

I love photos of random "art" like this. I guess that's what you could clarify it as.


Anonymous jimjims said ... (12:54 PM) : 

Love both NYC and BA!

Used to live in BA. Such a great place.

And those knots... Insane.

Really dig how simple little things can add so much style and flair to design.

Beautiful!!! Reminded me of this girl in Cosa Rica who makes artistic jewelry with fabric.

This is her site:

Beautiful Sart!

What an awesome picture pair, one black and white, an old style lace/makramee, the second an urban colourful net.. I like it a lot!
I don't know if you meant it like that, but I see them as one piece of art, together.


Blogger the chirpy bird said ... (1:22 PM) : 

Fantastic! love these!

Blogger Unknown said ... (1:22 PM) : 

The knotted NYC is a true pice of artwork. Nitty and Gritty. Like the image.
I would like to see this transfer into men's neckwear - a four-in- hand or a windsor.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:43 PM) : 

any beautiful out fit from BsAs?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:58 PM) : 

okaaaay... good photos, but what about fashion?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:51 PM) : 

I think some people commenting here are trying way too hard to read something into these two photos. I take your meaning that when you photographed the curtains, it reminded you of the stringing on the push cart. Or vice versa.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:09 PM) : 

great photos! amazing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:26 PM) : 

More Buenos Aires, please!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:39 PM) : 

I love them all, but especially the final one - the same colours repeated, but altered by the focal length. Very beautiful.

That's so interesting..

Muy lindas fotos!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:25 PM) : 

Knots and nets are among mankind's oldest tools; for thousands of years, they have been used for gathering, hunting and fishing. Anthropologists theorize that knots may have been inspired by the instinctive gesture of crossing one's arms.
Many knots have been imbued with symbolic meaning by diverse cultures. Chi-hsiang is the Chinese Good Luck knot. The Egyptian King Tutankhamen was buried with large knots put on both sides of his chest.
Its fascinating to discover that identical knotting structures appeared in ethnic work collected from distant and totally unrelated cultures. Juxtaposing knots and nets from far-distant parts around the world is perhaps a manner to show us that there appear to be no culture clashes between the ethnic and contemporary approaches, nor between the functional and nonfunctional solutions. The two are intermingled and the parallels intriguing.

Blogger 82Brute said ... (1:52 PM) : 

These two photos thrill me completely. Among other things, in the first someone took a lot of time to make this intricate, decorative and functional window dressing by hand only to have someone else take it for granted, flying through the door in such a hurry as to tangle the fringes in the nob. The second, (the saturated colors and textures are spectacular) and here someone went to a lot of trouble to retrofit this cart, cobbling together the scraps to do so and inadvertently creating beauty in the process. Both speak to human interaction with mundane objects--the door, the cart--where necessity couples with invention leading accidentally to something else entirely, which perhaps they don't even see, but the photographer does; he discovers it and renders it into art. It's genius.


Blogger Rachael said ... (1:53 PM) : 

Great pictures! I almost thought the soccer net was the Argentine picture because you see a lot of those around BS but judging from the comments it's the other way around. Love the two pictures!

I hope to see more pictures of your stay here in Buenos Aires!


Blogger Rachael said ... (1:55 PM) : 

Haha, I just looked a little closer at the second image and it isn't a soccer net at all. My mistake. Still, I love the pictures and the grungy yet romantic look of them.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:53 PM) : 

won't you share some buenos aires looks???


Blogger Suite Henry said ... (4:59 PM) : 

I like these very much.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:21 PM) : 

Interestingly ,knots and cordages are the very same precursos of our actual textiles.
Besides, what I particulary found appealing is the fact that while a solitary knot in itself represents immobility and permanence, when assembled in a group(a net) they translate into flexibility and transparency.
On the second piece, a careful examination of its intricate circuitries of ropes that turn and twist will reveal its hidden beauty.It is the sublime metamorphosis of a rather vulgar object in art.


Blogger Liz S said ... (8:45 PM) : 

It's amazing where you can find artistry for photos.
I LOVE these!!!

Texturally fabulouso. Its true you have to always keep your eyes open for fashion inspiration if you want an edge.

thanks for the inspiration for my next collection!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:23 AM) : 

The knotted lace curtains reminded me of the lace dress sans slip that the Italian lady paraded around Milan earlier this summer- funny to see that reference. Thank you for an interesting unique visual blog.

So nothing that you saw in BA inspired you? What a pity!

I think there are lots of nice street looks (

To bad you haven't ran into one.
