Buenos Aires from the Sky

Architecture, Urban Landscape and Culture of Buenos Aires from a Different Perspective. Photographs by Nino Salgado.


Through his photographs, Nino Salgado allows us to admire the city from another perspective. Each image recaptures the beauty and architectural richness that define Buenos Aires as a cosmopolitan, diverse and vibrant city.

This exhibition shows majestic domes, street layouts, emblematic avenues and landscapes that have changed over time. It also celebrates the urban heritage of Buenos Aires, seeking to contribute to its preservation.

The exhibition displays five unique aerial photographs by Nino Salgado. It also includes four before-and-after photographs to observe the city from similar angles but at different moments in time: 1925 and 1927, by Juan Bautista Borra and Enrique Brozeit (from Juan Carlos Borra's family collection of photos); and 2022, by José Días Diez and Nino Salgado.

About the Author

Juan Carlos “Nino” Salgado is an Argentine professional photographer. He won the first prize in the photography contest called Haciendo Foco ("making focus"), within the framework of the 22nd anniversary of the autonomy of the City of Buenos Aires in 2018.

Photography has been a part of his life since he was a child. He loved looking through his family photo albums, reliving those moments (nature, cities and wonderful landscapes) as if they were happening again. When technological evolution matched analog photography, he found another way to see the city and its art: looking up, discovering its beauty. With the arrival of drones, he learned that the sky was no longer a limit but a window to an incredible landscape.

Nino Salgado shares content on social media and digital platforms. He displays his photographs in different venues, and gives courses, and organizes events and photographic outings.

The exhibition can be visited until July 7, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Museum of the BCRA, at San Martín 216, Autonomous City of Buenos Aires.
