    With Coin-bright Shimmies

    I have always admired dancers, the beauty and grace of their movements. Belly dancing in particular is a beautiful celebration of femininity that can transform any woman into a goddess.

    An interesting twist of events brought the Poster Project to my attention the week before the Westcott Festival, so when I saw the poem about the dancers there, I knew I had to do it. I went wild taking photos; it was my first time at the festival, everything was new and interesting. I wanted to capture that energy, that vivacity.

    But mostly I wanted to capture the essence of belly dancing. It's not about any one woman or dancer. It's about womanhood and power, grace and strength, and a celebration of life.
