$ 120.00

The Perfect Gift, Buenos Aires is apart of our Pre-Sale Event and will be shipped to you as soon as the product is released!

Jacques Borgetto takes us into the intimacy of Buenos Aires, to meet its inhabitants and their habits. On an air of tango, it changes rhythm. If Buenos Aires offered himself generously to the photographer, Jacques Borgetto pays him a vibrant tribute in his images. 
At the heart of this white-black voyage is the colorful joy of a notebook dedicated to the Tigris Delta, a living archipelago of almost floating houses 15 kilometers from the nerve center of the Argentine capital.
The Perfect Gift includes:
  • A Portraits de Villes Book
  • A set of Portraits De Villes Vues Choisies (Postcards)
  • A Villes Vues Choisies image hand-set in a 9.75"x12" frame
