The largest city in South America north of Rio, Bogota is an urban environment of more than 7 million inhabitants; like other metropolitan areas, Bogota is many cities at once. Looking through Cristobal von Rothkirk's photographic eye, here is all of Bogota-the sophisticated Hispanic city, the South American captial, the complex of urban cultures tattooed with signs of international pop culture.
In this book is both a city being reshaped by our times as well as a timeless city with 500-year-old customs and festivals. Von Rothkirk sees the contrasts that show up at street level but even the grafitti is distinctively Bogota Cristobal von Rothkirch looks at his city in a passionate way, discovering what could be the new essence of the Pan-American metropolis.
Bogota viva!
