A couple of weeks ago, as part of the Foto Ruta photo tour, I visited Cemeterio Chacarita in Villa Crespo. The cemetery is larger than that of Recoleta, though much less famous. There’s no Evita equivalent here, but there are a few famous tango celebrities and thousands of ornate stones and sites. The gray overcast skies made for an eerie and beautiful experience. Check out a few of the shots!
