Ocher colored the earth, Flora white, bare feet in connection with the floor. Dancing in this lunar scenery, where she seemed to belong like a resident. It was Flora’s idea to shoot in this landscape. After a long walk to get there and more than one unsuccessful tries we succeed to shoot this sequence just before the nightfall.
