DANCING LIKE NOBODY’S WATCHING
The night is almost over, but Yana Viniko smiles as she is lowered backward by Timothy Shaw during the Dancing til Dusk event at Freeway Park in Seattle. The event concludes after the twilight blue sky fades into darkness.
Photography is a wonderful excuse to enter people’s personal space, far enough for an embrace and close enough for a kiss. The combination of the soft luminescence of the fading dusk and the ebb and flow of the music made the pursuit of this cinematic moment a visceral way of seeing the world with your eyes closed, while dancing passionately on your feet. — Marcus Yam
