I've been a dancer my whole life. I can remember hearing about the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival all the way back to my early teens. Every summer I would wait patiently for my Dance Magazine with the Jacob's Pillow insert in it. It would arrive sometime in the late spring/early summer and it always had a list of everything going on at the festival that year. I had never been before even though it was less than two hours away from my home.
So this week, I decided I would make the trek up to Becket, MA to see a performance and to visit the gallery showing of one of my all time inspirations - Lois Greenfield. Lois is one of the best dance photographers out there, her work inspires me to try new and exciting things with my photography.
I arrived at the festival around 6:30, just in time for the second half of Dark Circles Contemporary Dance's performance. The performance was an interesting piece with the dancers clad in circus attire. The soundtrack fit the costumes perfectly. Being able to dance on that stage must have been magical - through the dancers you could see everything around - it was gorgeous.
The campus was truly the epitome of rustic and beautiful. Everything about it was a photo out of dwell magazine. I am so privileged to have been able to photograph any performance at Jacob's Pillow and truly thank the people that make such a thing possible.
