In Pictures: Santiago

December 26, 2011

As 2011 comes to a close we pick out our favourite images of the year

  • Text by Satellite Voices

Santiago has been an awesome city to explore throughout 2011, coming up with surprises at every turn. From the emerging indie electro scene and underground electronic club beats in the barrios to a heathly local fashion scene and a grip of up-and-coming young photographers looking to represent their city in different ways. South America has a new creative hub to watch our for.

Welcoming our new Santiago City Editor Fer Manizaga, she gives us her favourite images of 2011.

1. Eleonora Aldea Pardo
At 27, Eleonora Aldea Pardo has been taking pictures professionally for the past two years. She is currently finishing her graphic design career, so whenever possible, she escapes from her little coast town Olmué to Santiago for the parties and shows around the city. You can immediately tell that this is the thing she loves the most.

2. Margarita Dittborn
Visual artist and photographer Margarita Dittborn is part of the "Younger than Jesus" world art collective that unites the most awe-inspiring artists under 33-years-old.

3. Salvador Burrell
After travelling, Salvador Burrell, the Chilean actor and musician, realised just how difficult it was to find good men’s clothes made in Chile. That was when he created DeSastre, a new label dedicated to menswear specifically made in Chile. Based in classic men’s garments, DeSastre takes local elements to combine trends and history, the hometown hero label being unveiled at Santiago Fashion Week.
