Esteban Pastorino Díaz

From my review of “Shifting Perspectives: Estaban Pastorino Díaz” which closed the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston on Oct. 13:
Argentine photographer Esteban Pastorino Díaz rigs cameras to kites and model planes and helicopters to create DIY bird’s-eye views that make the world look like boys’ plastic-model-train sets. His show at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts’ Grossman Gallery includes shots of houses along a Boston street [see below], shacks and boats along a muddy river, two orange propeller planes parked on a grass runway, and a series documenting a bloody bullfight. There’s something riveting about stepping back to see the grand patterns of people and communities.
Read the rest here.
