The Stadiums of Buenos Aires Posted on 02 Jun 06:00 , 0 comments
Buenos Aires is known for being a city endowed with the highest number of professional football stadiums in the world. Everybody knows the two main stadiums of the city, El Monumental and La Bombonera, respectively starring River Plate and Boca Juniors, but the city is full of other stadiums that are worthy of a visit. In this series, photographer Arnaud Paillard seeks to show these stadiums as they are most of the time, that is, quiet. We always think of them as being overwhelmed with crazy barras bravas, but most of the time they are empty, waiting for players to start the show and for the audience to enjoy it. This photoseries shows the quietness of the shapes and shadows of these huge ships made of concrete, metal, and sometimes wood.
