This year Michele Wiles was the choreographer for a new Nutcracker in Rapid City and I had the wonderful task to be the photographer. Here, a young dancer waiting to go on stage.

"Making pictures is a way of life for me. I feel a need to see the images of the day to day life that surrounds me, right down to the smallest detail. I make pictures everywhere I go, holding onto what I see in my mind or with a camera. For me photography is a way to watch the rhythms of my world as it dances through the seasons and as a way of engaging with its secrets"
