Australian Indigenous people use dance and song to tell stories, this image is the story. photo by Wayne Quilliam an Aboriginal man and photographic artist www.aboriginal.photography.com

    A stunning composition greatly enhanced by the choice of monochrome tones. A great insight into another culture and tradition is well captured and the lighting is just spectacular! Perfect place at the perfect time!

    What a wonderful story and photo!  You're right, the image is the story - so much expression, movement, feeling, mood expressed.  Perfect lighting!  B&W takes the mind to the shapes and shadows, the pure statement without distraction of color.  Excellent work!
