Siesta Argentina is a fold-out book, similar to those old Japanese ones. It shows a series of symmetric commercial façades portraying a distinctive characteristic of Buenos Aires city. About 50 black-and-white photographs compose a sampling of typical suburban, “window-door-window” grocery stores, set up at 8.66-metre-wide house fronts.

Bars, butchers, dry-cleaners, and all kinds of stores, many of them closed, always empty and desolate, invite us to take a siesta. Rather than a time of the day, it depicts a state of mind, in which Buenos Aires stretches itself and yawns, as if suspended in a dream.
