    Photography by Agustin Farias.

    My name is Agustin Farias, I was born in San Antonio de Areco, a small beautiful town outside of Buenos Aires.
    My family is from Italy, but I don’t really have a strong connection to that history. I’ve always been curious about their life there and i wished that i had witnessed how it changed once they moved to Argentina.
    I’ve been taking photos since I was 18 and right now i enjoy the most shooting portraits, but as a kid my dream was to direct films
    Travelling has a strong influence over my work, Although my greatest adventure was 4 years ago in Vietnam my best memory taking photos was in Berlin. It was just on my phone, but because of the light it looked like film.
    When i am taking pictures i am mainly focusing on the light.
    This series was shot in Berlin after Elaine contacted me on instagram. She was visiting from London and asked me if i could take her picture.
    I reached out to Keke on Instagram. I thought the combo of Elaine and Keke, her masculine side and his feminine side, would be nice to shoot. 
Right now I’m working on a new series of photographs, inspired by the Berlin club-scene and friends and random people I’ve met there.
    My biggest dream would be too shoot for Calvin Klein but in the future I’d like to read free online horoscopes.
