The pictures were taken by two Swiss photographers, Daniel Spehr and Kathrin Schulthess, and Guido Indij, a Porteno, or Buenos Aires local, as they walked the vast perimeter of Argentina's legendary "village" of more than 11,000,000 inhabitants. Together, they read like a breathing archive, a super-memory, a culture with an unmistakably powerful flavor.
