As the crowd stands in rapt attention to the dancer’s performance, they frame the dancers instead of competing with them. Imagine if instead this photo was presented in color. The dancers could have easily gotten lost against that sea of people and the variety of textures and colors they are wearing. Instead the photographer works purely with light and contrast. Though small in the frame, the dancers take center stage in the image, drawing your attention directly to them, captivating you as they did the crowd.
