Photograph as Portal

1954. Princeton Ballet Society. McCarter Theater. The Swan and the the Prince

This photo is a portal back in time to  Princton Ballet Society performances at McCarter theater. I am in high school and falling in love with ballet. Here I am a white bird, a swan I think. And there is a prince. (Who is he?)  I am captivated by our connection, the way we are looking at one another, the way our heads tilt slightly and how the gaze is between us.   Looking back through this photograph into this moment I wonder who this person is who was me.
