“This shot shows a bridesmaid at a wedding dancing the traditional Dagestani dance, highlighted by the lighting and illuminated in her white dress. At weddings, women sit and eat separated from the men and it is only on the dance floor, after the first few songs that any form of mixing will take place. In this photograph, the women, mostly dressed in black, dance whilst the men sit, drink and watch only to join them a few songs later.”
