This month we feature a deliciously sexy and dynamic dance-in-action image taken by Tango Photographer, Andreea Văidean, from London.

” This is one of my favourite tango poses ever. It’s shot at low angle, creating a unique and powerful composition and capturing the ‘last note’ of the song in an entirely different way. It features Ivan Arandia and Paula Duarte, at an open-air tango show in Twickenham. What I love about this image is how drawn it makes you feel – as a viewer – into that moment and that unique feeling of closeness to the dancers you get. It is a static moment, but somehow it manages to capture the movement of the dance, with dynamic body positions, through the diagonal hang of her leg and his back leg. The texture (black lace) & the color palette (black & white) give a delicate, yet sensual note to the image, reminding that tango is and will also be forever ‘bohemio y soñador. ”

Shot with a Canon 5D Mark III, 105mm, f/4.0, ISO 1000 and 1/250.

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.
