Street dancers

Gombey dancers are one of Bermuda’s cultural icons. Performing often at random on the island’s streets, their hypnotic and rhythmic procession to the relentless beat of snare drums is a Bermuda tradition. Their costumes and rituals are a mystical blend of the island’s African, Caribbean, Native American and British cultures.

I shot this troupe (Place’s Gombeys) in Hamilton, Bermuda using Hipstamatic’s Salvador 84 lens and DreamCanvas film to give them an other-worldly and mysterious look.
