Photographer's Note

Laurent Schwebel

Was a well known french photographer, on February 8 at about 8.15 AM he was taking photos in this square when a thief approached and tried to steal his camera
He resisted the robbery and struggled, unable to get it, the offender pulled out a knife, stabbed Laurent in the chest and fled, was cached by the police minutes later
Laurent was dead
He behaves in a very brave way

I took this photo 3 days before these facts at the same square which seems so quiet being so dangerous even at day

San Martin Square
is one of the oldest squares in the city and also one of the most beautiful, for its lush vegetation, large and beautiful trees and a variety of plant due at the work of Carlos Thays a French landscape architect
The pink flowers at the BG are from "Palos Borrachos" (Drunken Trees), a South American Tree

Kavanagh Building
Opened on January 3,1936, was the first skyscraper in Buenos Aires made of reinforced concrete, has a height of 120 meters and rationalistic style
Since 1999 National Historic Landmark
