"The dance can reveal everything mysterious that is hidden in music,
and it has the additional merit of being human and palpable.
Dancing is poetry with arms and legs."
I once was told by another photographer that if you are looking for inspiration for your own artistic medium, look to other artistic mediums that are not your own.
Read the masterpiece created by the author who is able to form revelations, new ideas, and poetry with the words she skillfully pieces together.
Listen to way a musician blends a complex pattern of notes and rhythm to create a song that brings tears and a unforgettable sense of wonder to their audience.
Watch as the pieces of various fabrics and textures of cloth are sewn together to create an article of clothing that graces the magazine covers and runways of modern fashion.
Witness the transformation of a seemingly meaningless lump of clay as the potter shapes, molds, carves, and colors it into beautiful pottery.
And allow yourself to be captivated and carried away by the way dance beautifully takes music, human movement, and expression to a whole new level.
I am honored and proud to share with you all a sneak peak into "Portrait of a Dancer", a photo session with a beautiful woman named Patience.
Stay tuned for more to come!
Many thanks to Miranda Villanueva of Love and Artistry for Patience's hair/makeup!
