When Spanish photographer and artist Victor Enrich visited Rafael Uribe in Colombia, an urban area a few miles south of Bogotá, he was struck by how the struggling city was lively, yet full of contradictions (h/t Dezeen). The result of mismanaged migration patterns in the mid-20th century, the area now lacks an identity, with the younger generations focusing more on the mainstream Bogotan culture than their own heritage.

Enrich’s photography project titled “Rafael Uribe Uribe Existe,” which superimposes New York’s Guggenheim museum over the landscape of the Colombian city, highlights the “contrast between North and South American imagination.” In doing so, he hopes to show how international cities with a high quality of life are those that protect their different communities instead of allowing them to vanish.
