Doors of South America

A collection of 300 best door pictures of South America has been a long work in progress, photographing historic doors across nine countries including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Peru, and Uruguay. What is the attraction of taking door pictures? It’s a combination of visual composition, symmetry, and symbolism. The wide variety of colors, contrasts, and styles by region makes for a dialogue on culture.
