About the Book
Tango is not often associated with New York City. Yet, it thrives in the Big Apple. While not documentary or exhaustive, this photo book aims at introducing the readers to the diverse tango scene of New York City as well as to share the deep emotions and the special moments New Yorkers enjoy when they dance tango.
I was introduced to photography by my father, years ago. I started with film cameras, the only game in town in those days. Working mostly with black and white film in the darkroom, I was fascinated by the magic of light: seized on film and coming to life on a piece of paper. I have always been intrigued by the way taking pictures allows me to connect with other persons and unfamiliar environments—even from behind the protective shield of a camera— and how through the revealing viewfinder, I could find and touch—even if slightly— the essence of my subjects and the emotions they transmit. I enjoy taking pictures of people and places. There is so much to uncover, if we only take the time to see when we look. It has been a vastly gratifying experience. Caught by the digital revolution, I no longer work with film, but black and white remain my favorite colors.
