Here we have an evocative mood-shot of a Tahitian vahiné performing a graceful dance during the Heiva Festival in Papeeete in July 2004. This traditional Polynesian cultural festival lasts for two weeks. The cream of French Polynesian artists perform in front of capacity crowds at the ‘Place Toahata’, situated on the Papeete quayside.
