The Art of Ballet


“Please send me your last pair of shoes, worn out with dancing as you mentioned in your letter, so that I might have something to press against my heart.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I am almost rendered speechless in how to explain myself here. Having watched Anna Kate grow up over the years and photographing her with her family, I’ve been stunned by her poise and beauty. Now a ballerina, I was drawn to create a project around her and her dance. It was an incredible experience collaborating creatively together and I am over the moon with her images.
