Click to preview Dance Magic Deluxe Edition photo book

This is a larger size edition with 40 more pages!

I call it DANCE MAGIC because that is the only way I can explain the incredible feats of physical strength and beauty that dancers perform in front of my lenses. The cover image is a great example.

Every image in this book has a story. But I have elected to add explanations to only a few. For the most part it is a picture book. I love dance and I love dancers. And I appreciate dancers...and I think I have grown to understand dancers. It is this love, appreciation, and understanding I hope to convey in my work.

If you find any of these images beautiful, it is because I was lucky enough to capture the beauty created by the dancers.
