Evita's Silence

A place to hear and watch the silence.

If you’re looking for a little bit of silence from the noisy concrete jungle of Buenos Aires, the place to be is Recoleta’s Graveyard. There are celebrities and important people from Argentina’s history “sleeping” here, like Evita Perón and writer José Hernandez.

My advice is to keep a bottle of water handy, especially if you love your cameras and your wish is to get lost in the scenery. The graveyard’s architecture seems cold with an authentic labyrinth where finding the exit will turn into one, big mission.

I never considered myself as a graveyard fan, the energy surrounding such places make me feel respectful but this graveyard has something special that no other site has. If you are interested for more information about the “sleeping people” here, you can look at photos and personal objects which decorate the place where they enjoy eternal silence

If you partner animal is a meek cat, you will find a great variety here.

I chose to document my experience with a Rollei Cross Bird 35mm and the results was a surprise, light blue stained with a shadow of pastel colors.

How to get here?
I know that Buenos Aires can seem chaotic, but don’t sweat it. You can easily get there by Bondi (bus) or the subway.
