EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, we are transported back to the vibrant streets of Calabar, Nigeria in 1956. A Nigerian dancer from the esteemed Efik tribe takes center stage as she gracefully concludes a traditional dance performance for none other than The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh during their Royal Tour. The Ntimi, known as the supreme ceremonial dance of the women of Calabar, is reserved solely for grand public occasions. As our eyes are drawn to her striking attire, two significant elements stand out - a red feather delicately held between her lips symbolizing silence and a skillfully manipulated gourd that conveys messages of unwavering loyalty. This moment frozen in time captures not only the rich cultural heritage but also showcases the profound respect and honor bestowed upon royalty in West Africa. The intricate movements and rhythmic beats echo centuries-old traditions passed down through generations. Freddie Reed and Arthur Sidey's lens perfectly encapsulates this historic encounter between tradition and modernity. It serves as a testament to the power of artistry transcending borders, bringing people together from different corners of the world. As we gaze at this remarkable image, we can almost hear the resounding applause that followed this mesmerizing performance. It reminds us that even amidst vast distances and diverse cultures, there exists an undeniable connection through shared appreciation for beauty, grace, and tradition.
