Continuing with the New York art theme…are y’all familiar with The Ballerina Project?
It’s a whimsical project dreamed up by photographer Dane Shitagi. He beautifully shoots professional dancers in stunning backgrounds in urban settings, mostly in New York City.
Sometimes the dancers seem to be one with the scenery, sometimes they’re very much opposed.
The collection combines two of my loves: beautiful urban photography and ballet. I was a ballerina once upon a time and it’ll always be a part of me. These photos show the equal amounts of grace and strength in these professional dancers, and they show what I preach on this blog: you can find pretty every day!
Mailboxes, refrigerators, graffiti-covered street lamps? There’s beauty in everything.
Which is your favorite?
