Proyecto Tango @ Matrix Fine Art

When people think of Tango, they think of Buenas Aires. World Renowned Dance Photographer Stephen Marino and Writer Pat Pitula have proven with their book Tango!... In Your Wildest Dreams! that Tango can actually be found all over the world, including Albuquerque. As Stephen passed through the crowd mimicking the leading movements of a male Tango dancer, he describes the unimaginable feeling of being engulfed in these amazing places full of life and passion, as those portrayed in his photographs.
Stephen has been a Dance Photographer for years, photographing for Dancing With The Stars amongst other things. Stephen & Pat both had a concept in mind for this book years prior to even meeting each other, but when they did, they knew this wasn't a coincidence and immediately started collaborating on this project. The book contains photos from, Buenas Aires, South Africa, The Bahamas, and the United States of America. Through their travels and experiences photographing and writing about Tango, one definite conclusion was made: Tango is Dancing More with Feel than Mind. Tango is Free! The Proyecto Tango show will be at Matrix Fine Art until the 26th of November 2011.
