Crimean Tatar Dancer

Crimean Tatar Dancer


Description:

It is such an interesting feeling not having to travel beyond Lowell to watch the Crimean Tatar Ensemble to perform the traditional “kaytarma” dance — my ancestral culture seems to be paying a visit to me at this part of the world. I must have had the same self-enjoyment smile pushing the shutter button of the camera. Confession: a microphone was visible next to the torso of the dancer. I removed it in the post-processing.
