We all pray in different ways.
Some are reciting text they deem holy. For some - their art is their prayer. This is the case with the belly dancer captured in this image.
We did a photo shoot a few weeks ago, and when we finished, I told her that to me, her dance is the closest thing to prayer I have ever seen.
When I saw the call for photographers to submit images for the Con-Text juried exhibition at Darkroom Gallery - I knew what is the image I want to submit.
I photographed a Psalms book we have at home, combined the images, and there it was - The prayer.
And to my greatest delight, this image was selected to be part of the exhibition opening on 1.1.15. :)
What is prayer to me? Its when you feel part of something bigger than yourself. I can feel it sometimes when I am in the midst of nature or when I succeed doing something that makes a real difference.
What is prayer to you?
