Portrait of cuatro builder Marya Barragan-de Wet from Argentina playing one of her instruments.
Maira Barragán from La Problaciôn (Cordoba) in Argentinia is a gifted person. She builds (and plays) the cuatro ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuatro_(instrument) ). Not just ordinary ones but as a real ‘Luthier’ she creates cuatros with wood and silver inlays (the last probably inspired by her jewellery making father).
Maira is visiting the place I live in and more than happy to show off. Photographs are all processed in a different way but all shot with settings ISO 400, A 8 and S 1/15 (with Canon and Sony cameras).
