I was invited to photograph a local classical ballet academy with a local art organization for reference photos for paintings. I was there to capture movement and lines I could translate to ink paintings. It was my first focused effort to capture truth in humans – animals are natural, they don’t hide their nature the way people do.
The children knew we were coming and would be taking pictures of them. I expected them to be self conscious. Instead they were sweet and charming and exuded Grace.
