Violence flares in the streets of Latin America; it is part of its lands-cape and constitutes its identity. The work of Diego Levy proposes a journey along the most violent streets of the South Americancontinent: Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Medellín and Mexico City. Situations like the ones shown in Levy’s photography are something usual in the marginal neighbourhood of these cities, where children (often holding their mother’s hands) get involved almost playing in crime scenes. Maybe unconsciously, they are building their memories with images of blood and death as if this is a natural, dangerously normal scenario.
