The end of year celebrations of Christmas and New Year’s Eves see fireworks light up the skies over Argentina. There are some government-sanctioned displays, but mainly it’s a cacophony of explosions as people try not to blow their own hands off. Photographer Beatrice Murch shares some of the views she’s captured over the years in Buenos Aires.
