“Scarf Dancer,” is part of a Photo Impressionism dance series. The series focuses on dance and dancers that live and perform in Surrey, BC. Color, energy, beauty and movement are expressed in these softly focused images.
Photographs in this series are part of a project linked to the upcoming Creative Cities Summit in Surrey, BC this October. The theme of the summit is “The Future Lives Here: Bridging Cultures and Building Communities.” The Fusion Festival was a wonderful opportunity to capture the diversity, energy and many cultures that make up Surrey. A collection of Fusion Festival event photographs can be viewed here (link to Fusion Festival photos).
