This year was the 10th anniversary of the Brussels Tango Festival, the one that got me started in photos. Together with my partner in crime Panni, we took thousands of pictures on the afternoon milongas, evening salons and special events. We also had 6 visiting photographers in the festival, and their photos, together with the Paparazzo ones, can be found on the official photo album of the Brussels Tango Festival.
I was allowed to escape the Belgian rain season for a weekend and go to the place where Europe touches Asia and tango thrives. I never have been that spoilt in open-air milongas (roof top! swimming pool! Bosphorus bridges with light show!). Thanks to Aydogan & Sule for their warm welcome, to all the nice Turkish people I’ve met and to the numerous friends I had the pleasure of meeting again (Beirut represent!).
Just finished the Brussels Tango Festival!! It was the sixth time I was the photographer here and it was absolutely great. This year I introduced a dress code theme for each evening to liven up the photos, and they did just that. Here are the winners:
