Photo Essay: Santiago, Chile

Santiago, the vibrant, overwhelmingly modern capital of Chile, is a sprawling metropolis of seven million people. Amidst the sea of contemporary architecture, there are remnants of the city’s dark, not-so-distant past: the years of political oppression, human rights abuses, and socioeconomic inequality the country suffered under the Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship from 1973 to 1990. Underneath it all, however, Santiago lives up to its nickname of "Sanhattan"— a city that's always in motion, that never sleeps, and that’s home to great spots for exploration.
