Alejandro M. Campos Herrera

Just a small sample of the breathtaking images by Alejandro that you will find in his tumblr. I have previously complained about the lack of representation of Latin American architecture here on tumblr, but his photographs make up for some of it, capturing in his images the beauty and sophistication of our architectural legacy. For that you get a heartfelt hug from me, thanks.

Check out this tumblr!
