Argentine tango is famous for being one of the most evocative and passionate dances in the world. Synonymous with tango is the city of Buenos Aires; the heart, soul and birthplace of the dance. Cafés and dance halls line the cobblestone streets and it is easy to move into the rhythm that is tango. From the bordello to the world stage, the tango we know today is an art form rich in history and culture — one that has evolved and transformed with the same twists and turns that make the dance so distinct.
This photo essay is an exploration of the more literal twists and turns, the cafés and basements, the caminitos (little walkways) and barrios (districts), and the porteños (people from Buenos Aires) who keep Argentine tango alive.
