[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yesterday was such an amazing day...

I made my first coverage as a press photographer for a culture event in Lujan, a classical town 70 km from BA.
The motto was "History and Faith" and there was a lot of the most important singers of our folklore culture.
One of this stars was the argentine singer Mercede Sosa.
She`s an icon of music in our culture and also considererd "The voice of Latinamerica" well known in the entire continent and respected in Europe.

Mercedes also sang in theaters as The Lincoln Center, the Carnegie Hall, (with and ovation of 15 minutes) the Mogador in Paris and Concertegebuw in Amsterdam and also in the famous Colon Theatre here in BA.
During her carrer she has been invited by artist from all over the world as Luciano Pavarotti, Sting, Lucio Dalla, Nana Mouskouri, Joan Baez, Andrea Bocelli, Silvio Rodríguez, Pablo Milanés, Milton Nascimento, Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, Gal Costa, Gian Marco, Konstantin Wecker, Nilda Fernández, Pata Negra, David Broza, Luz Casal, Cecilia Todd, Ismael Serrano among others.

It was an honor to me to have been with her in the press conference talking and sharing few words and also captured her escense on stage.

Due her advance age she sings sitting on a coach. No photographers or cameramans are allowed to be up on stage on her concerts respecting the audience to see her and her band without interferience. (that`s why this caption is from below stage.)

Hope you like it ...

I am a big fan of Mercedes Sosa. It is amazing how you could captured her. Beautiful colors, lighting of a great moment.

Me encanta el estilo de sus canciones y el tono de su voz. Me imagino el orgullo que han de sentir todos los Argentinos de tener una paisana tan provilegiada. Saludos desde México.
