I was invited to my first UK tango trip: the Abrazos matinee, organized in London on Bank holidays by A Taste Of Tango. Not only did it feature workshops and a demo by Jenney & Giovanni Eredia (Firenze, IT), it also took place in a beautiful authentic room at Goodenough College, and in the most stunning sun drenched London.

The room was packed, and as the theme was ‘fiesta‘, there were colours everywhere. A great opportunity for me to play with light/shadow and colour filters.

I just did the Italian total immersion experience and it was absolutely brilliant. Meeting friends in Torino, travelling to La Tosca together, having an absolute blast of a time! I learned some new words I cannot tell you about, and saw so many friends back. Awesome!

Personal project: “zapatos terminados”

_MG_8733.JPG

Dear tango ladies – fans of the Tango Paparazzo 😉
for a personal photo project for 2013 I am looking for end-of-life tango shoes or “zapatos terminados“. With this I mean: shoes that have become unwearable and/or unresellable because of wear or damage. The shoes you can only throw away, but it hurts your heart to do so 🙂
The more colorful/spectacular the shoes are, the better. The only thing I can offer in return is the eternal pride and satisfaction of you recognizing your shoes in a beautiful picture.
