Photographer's Note

El Ateneo Grand Splendid is a famous bookshop located in the Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires, and it stands out for being working, since 2000, in the building where the Grand Splendid Theater used to be. The space has been readaptated to its new function, but retaining the original architecture. On the stage where today is a café, in the background of the image, some of the greatest tango artists have played, such as Ignacio Corsini, Roberto Firpo and Carlos Gardel. In 2008, The Guardian placed it as the second most beautiful bookshop in the world, and in 2019 it was named the "world's most beautiful bookstore" by the National Geographic.
