Alejandro Del Prado (Calé) was born in Rosario, Argentina in 1925 and died in Buenos Aires in 1963.
Calé drew "Buenos Aires in a vest" for the popular weekly "Rico Tipo". Although Cale was born in the province of Santa Fé, he was an wonderful observer of the life of the Porteños, the inhabitants of Buenos Aires.
Calé was a poet of the simple people and their lifes. His wonderful work still inspires me after all these years.
These stills are taken from the short "Buenos Aires in camiseta" made by Martin Schorr.
This film was released in 1966. It was done with drawings specially drawn by Calé for this project. Unfortunately, Cale died of a heart attack before the film was completed.
The quality of these stills is not great because they are taken from a poor VHS copy but the film is very difficult to find.
