Dance of the Seven Veils

When Salome danced for King Herod, there’s some controversy about the number of veils she used in her dance. But there is no controversy in these images: I created them with one beautiful woman and one piece of white fabric and in-camera multiple exposures on a black background. The composition was not changed in Photoshop, although I did routine cropping and processing, and added a texture.
