Lanterns in the Night | Photograph by Shannon Hunt (@shuntm42) | #Sponsored by @Rolex
“It has been a tradition for generation of mothers to involve their daughters in dance, as a way to make them stronger in body and mind. I have witnessed this first hand with my daughter,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Shannon Hunt. “She has gone from an extremely shy little girl to a confident young woman ready to face the world. I am so grateful to her teachers for this gift. This photo was taken on June 9, 2017 at 7PM during her 2017 dance recital.”
“This evening dance recital is precisely captured at a moment of exquisite choreography, gesture, and light. Magically the lantern draws our attention to the glow in the girls’ tutus, and the engaging drama on stage.” — @natgeo photographers Diane Cook and Len Jenshel (@cookjenshel)
