My photographic work has taken me from archaeological digs in Israel to the tango barrios (neighborhoods) of Buenos Aires. In Argentina, I visit milongas (place where tango is danced) and enter a world which had, until four years ago, intimidated me. These images are intended to express elements of the passion and nostalgia in tango. Making images in the dance clubs must be fast and unobtrusive. No flash was used, which resulted in the record of movement and overall impressionistic quality of these final archival C-prints.
