Moments by a Tango Photographer: Explosion of happiness

Every time I look at this picture I wonder what happened? Who are they? Why are they laughing? As a dancer and photographer, I truly enjoy watching tango couples lost in the dance and their embrace. There is something magical to experience when witnessing those tango moments… This particular tango couple caught my eye during my first tango marathon and photography project in Berlin. There was something beautiful about the dancing leader grinning broadly and hearing both their occasional giggling and laughing. Witnessing an explosion of happiness and laughter at the end of their milonga tanda was priceless… Page by page, chapter by chapter I continue to write my stories; if you would like to be a part of my photography journey please get in touch!
