By: Sabine Vollmer von Falken - Jan 13, 2014
More than 175 people attended Six Depot Gallery in West Stockbridge last Friday for the opening of "A Tango Diary," photos of dancers and would-be dancers from South America to the Berkshires.
After gallery-goers enjoyed the photographs, they were taught the Argentine tango by Jackie L. Wong, an instructor from Tangopulse of Lenox. Guests danced into to the evening to The Milonga, a popular Argentinian song and form of tango music.
Sabine is known not only for her skills at portraiture, but an ability to tell stories through photographs in a documentary style. The thought-provoking images have appeared in numerous publications and books. She has created personal statements about people and places for over 40 years. Her photographs reveal the emotional core of her subjects. With recognition as both a commercial and fine art photographer, she has earned a special place in the photographic arts, in the Berkshires and beyond.
The gallery is attached to Six Depot Roastery and Cafe on Depot Street in West Stockbridge. The gallery is a space, where one can read, write, and experience the arts.
