A closeup moment during a performance by Praising Hands, a group of women who are part of a “deaf and hard of hearing ministry” in Southern California. These women are beautiful in the truest sense of the word, bringing so much joy to their mission to share the word of God to all, without an ounce of prejudice or prejudgment as they dance and sign to spiritual tunes. I captured this moment during a concert on the night before the Pride 2008 festival in Long Beach, California, for which I was the official photographer.
