WILLIAMSBURG — In an effort to spotlight local dancers and their dance schools local photographer and Sony Alpha Female Creator In Residence Monica Sigmon, has opened an virtual photography exhibit that will run through July 7.
Sigmon, who co-owns Sigmon Taylor Photography, started the project to call attention to the dancers who continued to practice their art throughout the COVID-19 shutdown.
“I wanted to pay tribute to these athletes. I have so much respect for what they do, and I wanted others to see the mental and physical strength it takes to commit to this craft,” Sigmon said in a press release. “The pandemic has been exceptionally hard for the arts, and the loss to the world of dance has been great.”
The online exhibit gives the viewer a three dimensional walk through of the art gallery, allowing them to navigate through rooms and hallways adorned with portraits of dancers.
The exhibition is free of charge, but there is an option to give a donation. According to the press release, all of the proceeds will go to the dance schools and dancers.
