Palermo Viejo: Eduardo Fialho's Gallery of Abandoned Cars


Tue, Jun 26th, 2012 12:00 by capnasty NEWS

Art Director Eduardo Fialho has put together this gallery documenting the forgotten antique cars quietly rusting away in Buenos Aires. As he explained in his email to me:

About the project, the series was taken over the past few weeks while I was studying advertising in Argentina. I realized that there are many abandoned cars in the Palermo Viejo, the most charming neighborhood of Buenos Aires, as consequence of the economic crises faced by Argentina. I started taking some pictures to post in Instagram and, later, it became a project for the advertising course that I'm doing here in Buenos Aires, in Brother Escuela de Creativos. Many of them are amazing vintage models. Really beautiful cars getting spoiled by the time.

Eduardo kindly permitted the use of the above image in this post.
