Faces of Mercado San Telmo

Laura and I had a nice time wandering Buenos Aires’ San Telmo barrio on our first day in BA. Every Sunday San Telmo hosts a very popular open air market with antiques, trinkets, and souvenirs galore.

There is also a permanent market just off Defensa. Wandering through it, Laura suggested we ask some of the vendors if we could grab quick portraits, so we spent about 30 minutes asking people if we could take their pictures via our bad Spanish.

“Peudo tomar una photo?”

About 60% said yes. There are a few candids in the mix too.

So, here are some of Laura’s images from our mini project. Mine are down further.


Here are some of Chris’ images:


And a few more from outside.
