Buenos Aires - Aquabumps
All of these images are taken by Eugene Tan, better known as ::uge. Shooting at daybreak in Sydney has become his morning ritual. Uge visited Buenos Aires and Rio in 2015.
He’s had a camera in his hand since he was 9 years old and a keen surfer for 26 years. Uge is constantly seeking unique angles for his morning images, whether it’s shooting from underwater, in helicopters, or from a cliff in South Bondi.
- Streets of BA: At times you can feel like you are walking around the streets of Paris in Buenos Aires - it’s very European in culture, style and aesthetic.
- San Telmo Café: Buenos Aires is famous for its café life and late starts - most places don’t open until 12 and run late into the early hours of the morning. The city is quiet first thing - you can find yourself walking the streets on your own in the early hours of the morning - the coffee culture kicks off about 10am here.
- San Telmo Scribbles: The street art around Buenos Aires is mind blowing. It’s as though parts of the city have become a canvas for creatives, painters, illustrators - to wander the streets for a day just to capture glimpses of these is a day well spent.
- The colours of el Caminito: Buenos Aires - known as the little walkway or path in Spanish. Located in La Boca - famous for all the brightly coloured buildings and inspired the music for the famous tango.
If you like the images and want to see more, the Aquabumps Gallery in Bondi displays the images blown up in their full glory - as fine art prints. Aquabumps opened its first gallery in 2004 and sends artwork all over the world. All artworks are signed by the artist and available in various sizes, prices and framing techniques.
