This month we feature a lovely example of implied movement photography by the well-known Tango Photographer, Serdar Kaplan from Ankara, Turkey.

The photo was taken at the Sultan’s Tango Festival in Istanbul, Turkey in 2018 and captures the dancer, Ilgın Tetikcan, performing with her partner, Murat Elmadağlı.

Serdar used a Sony A7s with a short telephoto lens to capture the shot.

Serdar? Why this image?

“I like the conflict between the momentum of her blue skirt and the movement of her legs in perfect, gentle form.”

About the shoot: As part of the SHOOT! Featured tango photography project, our aim is to recognise the talent and skill of tango photographers around the world by presenting their favourite image on Tangofolly.

How to feature your photo: If you would like to feature an image on Tangofolly email Rita in the first instance.
