Camilo José Vergara is a Chilean-born photographer who captured buildings in his neighborhood and witnessed as they change through the years. He documented these structures in a span of over four decades .

Focusing on the most segregated communities within the urban America, he came back year after year to re-photograph the exact same places, becoming “an archivist of decline”.
