We met a few month ago. I was looking for a model to photograph for a portrait project, she was looking to renew the photographs on her site.
The click was immediate. I danced for many years, somewhere on my to do list is learning belly dancing. For her, dancing is the way you learn to love your body. not the perfect one you do not have, but the one you do. The way to connect with your most inner self, to pray, to be happy.
We went to a sandy park, when the sun was just about to set. She with a few costumes, I with a few lenses.
She danced barefooted on the sand, I danced with the camera around her.
Is this her portrait? A portrait of my yet unfulfilled wishes? The essence of dance?
Or maybe all of these together.
