Dancing is something I have never been able to do. Don't get me wrong, I can shake it at weddings but understanding the beautiful essence of dance... no. For some reason, I have been drawn to ballerinas for as long as I can remember; their elegant lines and passionately strong presence. I love the contrast they provide to the everyday... and this thought was the start of a pretty cool project.
'Alberta-Beauty Within' is a project started by Kevin (NAKA Photography) ... and as his fiance, I was automatically chosen to be a part of it. Kevin posted the initial project yesterday, have a look: www.nakaphotography.wordpress.com/2013/11/27/alberta-beauty-within/
Overall, this photo series uses a ballerina as a main symbol for an often-neglected theme: Alberta's vast and highly impressive art scene. The ballerina is shot against traditional Alberta settings and our hope is that this photo series captures the idea that Alberta's modern reality when compared to an outsider's perspective, is really quite different!
We will be posting many more photos throughout the month.. stay tuned!
