A very dear friend of mine just sent me a message about this photo and it made me realize that maybe I should share it with you as well.

I shot this photo during Aboriginal Day in Edmonton on June 21st 2012. I was working for the great people of Bent Arrow Traditional Healing Society and was covering an event put together by the fantastic Lisa Baroldi of Progress Unlimited.

I know I have said this before, but I will say it again because it’s worth remembering:

I am extremely grateful to be able to do what I do for a living, which consists of witnessing and taking photos of amazing people, events and discovering new cultures, communities and traditions every time I am on a new shoot.

Not everybody has the chance of enjoying his/hers work the way I do mine and it’s pretty easy to forget how lucky I am. Specially when working like crazy on 5 different projects at once.

But I’ll let you in on a secret: It’s not really work when it’s the only thing you wanna do when you wake up in the morning. (After having coffee of course.)

A few weeks ago, I had never heard of a round dance.

Then I met the amazing people from New in Town Edmonton (Aboriginal Welcome Service).

And part of my work for them was to photograph and film a round dance at the University of Alberta. This is by far one of the most intense experience I’ve had in a long time.

Being in the middle of those men while they chant and drum is truly breathtaking.

If you ever have the chance to witness that yourself, I strongly advice you do so.
