Paradise

Things which are close by, though far away

Paradise
The direction of a boat.
The relationship between a man and a woman.
 
Makura no Sōshi.
Sei Shōnagon
 
Immigrants waiting in Immigration Control in the old ‘Hotel De Inmigrantes’ in Buenos Aires.
A woman awaits acceptance from the man she wants.
An immigrant tells of how they found work in San Sebastian in the 70s.
 
From the 50s to the 70s—the period during which Argentinian immigration was at its peak—immigrants looked to the New World as though it were paradise on Earth, where abundance was a condition to be exploited by each individual.
