Many years before becoming a photographer, I remember being obsessed and delighted with ballet and dance photography—although never had the posture and discipline for dancing. My first time in US, when I was only 15, I’ve visited a museum in Florida—I can’t remember which one, but still have in mind the photos of ballerinas dancing in black and white. I never pictured myself one day holding a camera and capturing such beautiful movements, but I must say It’s a dream coming to life.
If you want to shoot inside Oculus—World Trace Center in New York—you’ll need a permit from the Westfield World Trade Center office. Just email them and ask for a permission to take a few shots when it’s less crowded—avoid rushing hours at all cost!
A huge thanks for Ju and Bebel, these gorgeous ballerinas, for waking up so early and open a slot in their super tight schedule for these amazing photos!
