Home of the Gauchos, Criollos and the few remaining colonial stores, the Almacenes.
Argentinian photographer Sabina Tuscany provides a window on a region which remains hidden for most visitors to Argentina - the Pampa. This is the home of the Gauchos and Criollos, vast herds of cattle, fabulous birdlife, and the few remaining colonial stores, the Almacenes. Most of them date back to the 19th century, but survive in all their originality to the present day. For this book Sabina Tuscany photographs and describes their environs, and legendary figures of the Pampa, the Gauchos in their rural horse-riding festivals.
