An Afternoon With Carmen Maria Tort Oviedo.

On my recent trip to Sevilla, I met a wonderful dancer in the Castelar studios. She invited me to join her in the studio where she was practicing for an upcoming show. At 28, Carmen moved from Mexico to Sevilla to follow her love for flamenco and work in Spain. Her work oozes with passion and emotion along with a great technique, something that personally draws me to flamenco and that made Carmen such a fantastic dancer.

She kindly let me photograph her rehearsals in a small studio she rents, along with her friends accompanying her with guitar and supplying the beat with an unusual soundbox/drum, also very important parts of the performance.
