Picture of a dancer’s feet that I took many years ago in Oakland, CA. This has long been one of my favorite shots.

Reposting it since she recently turned 50.

For those non-dancers out there, these are absolutely fantastic feet.

The bay area dance community is extremely small.

When I showed this picture to a dancer in another company, they were instantly able to identify the dancer.


  1. i recognize them too…people always talking about the feet as the foundation for the way one stands, moves, etc. in your photo, it is so clear that her feet are totally expressive of her movement. great photo. captures the grace and grit of being a dancer. i hope you can photograph j. again at 50.
