I have a fascination for photographing and capturing little girls dancing. They seem to inhabit quite another world when they are in full costume and fully in the zone of their dancing. I love to try to capture that moment when performers are most full alive in their creative expression of dance. This is a recurring theme in my work. These young twin girls were very striking and I got many good shots of them.
