Aldo Sessa took four years to bring this hugely impressive photographic, artistic and documentary book to reality. During this time, he visited every province, travelled 40,000 kilometres and took 50,000 photographs. The Gaucho so captivated Sessa that he can now be considered an expert on authentic Gaucho culture. His photographs show that Argentina is a marvellous country and the Gaucho an exceptional person. We will consider ourselves well compensated if, through this record, our fellow citizens discover that the Gaucho exists, in flesh and blood, and performs as the Argentine archetype. People from other lands will have a document through which they can witness the existence of these special people; "The Gauchos".
