Good Morning Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires Photographer Beatrice Murch Presents Tipas Porteñas

Beatrice Murch Presents Tipas PorteñasIn Tipas Porteñas, photographer Beatrice Murch presents a side of Buenos  Aires as iconic as Eva Peron or Jorge Luis Borges. They are canopies,  they cut organic figures in the urban landscape, they are at times  figurative, at times bare and leafless, at times exuberant dashes of  color, but they are ever present: the rosewood trees of Buenos Aires.

In her show, opening at the Jardín Botánico on November 21, 2011, Murch  shows the personality of these trees in their urban landscapes with a  dozen large scale digital prints. The Tipa trees are native to the north  of Argentina and their prevalence here in Buenos Aires is largely  attributable to French landscape architect Carlos Thays. Their strange,  irregularly shaped branches are the trees’ organic response to a local  spittle bug; the gnarled way they grow is unique to Argentina.

Murch’s photographs express joy, solitude, and serenity in the urban  landscape. The trees’ character is highlighted through Murch’s careful  curation of years’ worth of photographs reflecting her fascination with  these Tipas Porteñas.
