oh, lovely! i dance argentine tango myself, but it's not quite the same here in norway! so i hoped you or garance would post some shots of the real thing. i like that the photos are black and white; it adds a historical quality that feels right since tango started so long ago and is danced in these wonderful old buildings. – the last shot is of historical photos from milongas in this place, i gather? hope i'll get the chance to see it all for myself someday… in the meantime, thanks for posting these! t,
I love this place! I went there with my parents last year, and I always wonder if the guy who danced tango with me is still dancing, and if he is ok. He must be 80 years old now (I hope!), with his imaculate wig always flying with him through that amazing light…Thanks for the shot!
They're great photos as far as photos go but for someone unfamilar with what you're photographing it doesn't reveal very much. Maybe some more words would have helped? Hope to see more photos of people and fashion from your visit to Argentina soon.
The photograph with the dancing couple: I seem to spy his eyes staring straight at her bustline. And his fingers had dug a bit into her back. Thank you for showing us that love and passion need not end at 80.
The Sartorialist is one of my favorite must-see fashion blogs. But I am curious as to where the even mildly constructive and critical comments have "disappeared into". Surely there must be someone out there who has comments of this nature?
What a great pictures! This is definitely a really lovely place! It is one of the most authentic parts of the city, and is the perfect area to no how beautiful, passionate and interesting is Buenos Aires. Joe http://bsas4u.com/
La Ideal! Amazing. Did you know that a few years ago, at night it became a disco. A very cool one. With bands like Gene Loves Jezabel. It was awesome to be there, in that retro environment, dancing The Cure, or perhaps The B 52Â´s.. Love that place. Night and day. A classic.
