The Tropigals

As Chifferobe, the luxe Providence-based traveling club and event production company, celebrated its 3rd birthday on December 18th, I photographed the Tropigals, a neo-vaudevillian dance troupe that is one of the club’s draws.

I had initially tried it with 2 lights, but I loved the drama of the single flash much more as it reminded me of Caravaggio’s paintings that are so heavy on chiaroscuro.
