This month we feature a wonderful portrayal of tango music by Tango Photographer, Екатерина Денисова from Moscow, Russia.

The image is of the hand of the renowned musician, Pablo Montanelli, El Cachivache Quinteto taken at a recent performance in Moscow during their world tour. The tango band played at Milonga Me Gusta on 25 April 2017.
Екатерина Денисова took the shot using a Nikon D750. Her aim was to find the passion for the music; to show how it feels inside the musician’s intimate space between only himself and his piano.

We love the energy rushing out of this image. The light and shadow from such an interesting angle, the details of the hand, muscles contracting, poised amongst the piano keys. The graininess adds authenticity to the image. A fraction of a second in time and yet…

Can you hear the music?

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.
