The artistic impulse of Chilean Rocío Aguirre (@rocioaguirrev) has taken shape. “Helados” is the new photobook of the artist that gathers the most peculiar sculptures from different ice cream parlors around the world. The cities of Madrid, Paris, Berlin and Barcelona are presented to her as the perfect scenario to capture the essence of those forgotten: the less precious street objects.
