who took pictures?

Upon viewing the video of my performance a few times I realize there are quite a number of flashes going off...some of them during the more suggestive or sensual moves and poses. I'm not at all comfortable with the fact that people now have possession of these photos and they can pop up just about anywhere on any website. It would be nice if I could see them and find out how they are using them (maybe it's just for their portfolio or something). But I don't have any control over that.

I would very much like perform there again. Performance art is my first love in life, yet I somehow have been so busy teaching that I forgot to do what I love most. I want to perform publicly again. But I'm motivated not to do so by the fact that folks are free to take pictures there and I have no control over those pictures. I think my performances are a tasteful combination of dance, sensuality, acrobatics, provocativeness, playfulness, etc. But if you take photographs and capture a pose that is only provocative, it is not ME or what I do or represent because you have removed the acrobatics, playfullness, etc.
