Obviously I like wine. A lot. And eating. That too. And travelling…

  1. Hello Sorrel!

    I am a photographer in New York and will be visiting Buenos Aires for the first two weeks of January. I am very much interested
    in finding a local fixer or guide for a few days to help me get oriented and to meet locals.

    As you can see from my work, I am not interested in tourist attractions and if anything, I appreciate the slums, favelas, villas
    side of a city. Please checkout my work here:


    I read a few articles of yours and am fascinated by your journey and work. Do you think we could meet up for a meal or some
    drinks to chat? And do you know of anyone that I can hire for a few days to help me get a feel for the city, translate for me and
    possibly visit the slums?

    The greatest goal for me always with each city I visit is to eat with a family in their home.

    The best way to contact me is at doug@ricecracker.net
