She learned advertisement at the UCES University in Buenos Aires and succeeded as an art director in an advertising company. Then, she established her own photo and design studio "Tita Fotografica." Also, she engaged in the integral imaging project for the entrepreneur.

From 2008, she was fascinated in dancing and started learning, and got certified a professor of Salon Tango in 2011. Since then, she has found her new passion to Tango as a photographer, so she changed her field from advertisement to concert and Milonga. She works successfully as a freelance photographer now.

It’s an honor for us to be able to announce the exhibition of photographs taken by the well-known photographer Guillermo Monteleone.
Many of the participants of the milonga may have already visited the Salón Caning at Buenos Aires sometime. It is one of the most representative milongas for Buenos Aires citizens, which displays an impressive mural with pictures that capture the essence of tango.
That mural is a Guillermo Monteleone masterpiece.

His photographs will be displayed in the milonga halls of Fukuoka where a new video of singular beauty, will make its debut.
Let’s enjoy tango through all of our senses!!

 

7 pictures taken by the famous Argentine Photographer Guillermo Monteleone has been selected and it will be for sale in poster size.

“Capturar la fugacidad es tarea de cazadores de mariposas y fotógrafos.
El éxito de tales emprendimientos depende del ejercicio ocular, la estrategia, el cálculo y el reflejo. Aprisionar la luz en el segundo segmentado, eternizar el viento en una falda, velar lo prescindible, y sobre todo desnudar un carácter, una historia, una actitud que parece contarlo todo, esto y otros misterios de la sombra y la gente nos revela Monteleone desde su iris” (Oscar Araiz)

 

Guillermo Monteleone

Themonteleone studio has a long trajectory in the creation of the image that defines a brand: images of people, fashion, architecture, entertainment, models, portraits, products, corporate life. produced in interiors, exteriors or in our own studio, working with all the professional photographic formats. Besides, we count with teams of production, make up, coiffure, casting, clothes design, stage design, graphic design, styling, photofinishing, digitalization and our own laboratory of black and white processing.
"Being conected to the enterprise and fashion worlds has led me to corporate photography, where I set up with each group for a while and register pictures of their offices, places and each one´s functions, registering them in casual and directory meetings, with services that they offer to clients, on internal assignments, in portraits, receptionists; where it is worked in each case on situations that characterize people´s spontaneity"
