Cairo-born Sameer Makarius studied painting and abstraction in Hungary and travelled across Europe before moving to Argentina in the 1950s. He established himself as one of the most prolific photographers of the time, taking thousands of pictures of the vibrant city of Buenos Aires and of the immigrant neighbourhood of ‘La Boca’. Makarius published several books and founded ‘Forum’, a group of photographers engaged in the promotion of photography as fine art. This selection of vintage prints focuses on architectural details and patterns of the city’s modern landscape.
