Hoop Dancing is a speculator demonstration of athleticism, spirituality, meaning, music, and storytelling.
It is a positively dynamic use of artistic object manipulation.
I was honored and thrilled to be able to film the 2018 World Championship Hoop Dance Competition
at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
While my focus was on video, I was surprised to see how well my still images captured the motion of the dance.
I have been even more fascinated with still photography since that time.
