The High Km´s from Bariloche

Bariloche is a tourist destiny sustained in a bucolic image of forests, mountains and lakes; a living postcard in the Patagonia Argentina where pioneering – the first European immigrants – tried to reproduce an Alpine Europe.

But Bariloche is also Vuriloche, the step that the former inhabitants were using to cross the mountain chain of the Andes and a historical pole of internal migrations.

In this work, I´ve tried to link the environment and the frontier zone between El Alto, a slump neighborhood zone of migrations set as more vulnerable and the proceeding Km’s, a zone of the middle-class people, basically from BsAs.

**This was the first scanning I´ve done in  June 2013 in  Bariloche, Argentina.  It  continues with the main  and more in deep documenting  story  from 2014: The Vuriloche kids**
