These is a selection of photos from a book, Angeles de Piedra (Stone Angels) that I designed with photos taken in La Recoleta, a cemetery hailed as one of the world's best cemeteries  and listed by CNN among the 10 most beautiful cemeteries in the world. It is located in the Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The 5.5 hectares site is decorated with statues, in a wide variety of architectural styles. The cemetery with its mausoleums and images is surrounded by restaurants, museums, hotels - many or them by hour - buildings, bilboards, and bulletins that contrast with the Art DecoArt NouveauBaroque, and Neo-Gothic sculptures. I chose the Recoleta cemetery as a subject because it offered me the opportunity to document it as a place where life and death collide in a energetic and refined way.
