Description

The gaucho is an iconic symbol of the romantic ideal of the love of freedom and of the unspoiled landscape. With his camera, renowned Argentine artist Aldo Sessa spent months on end traveling around Argentina to its farthest reaches, sparing no effort or sacrifice, to follow and record the traces of these expert nomadic horsemen who preserve the Argentine tradition. Silently, without distracting them, Sessa captured the gauchos at all instances of their rustic daily life, around 50,000 images in total, each shot in fulfillment of a promise to Juan José Güiraldes, the legendary Argentine writer, aviator, and founding president of the Argentine Gaucho Confederation to eternalize the gaucho spirit. This spectacular volume captivates readers with sweeping vistas, fascinating details of traditional gaucho clothing and equipment, and compelling portraits of men young and old and their staunch equine workmates.
