B4dTsdhh2wG Our next stop for @CamerasandDancers through Europe is Stuttgart, Germany. We partnered with @The Stuttgart Ballet and @Kunstmuseum Stuttgart for the 57th meet. This company is one of the leading ballet companies in Europe founded by dancer John Cranko in 1961. Dancers who have emerged from the company became well-known choreographers, including Neumeier, William Forsythe, Foofwa d’Imobilité, Uwe Scholz, Jiří Kylián, Renato Zanella, and many others. The incredible dancers of the company and the photographers explored the museum during sunrise as the light peaked through the architecture. #camerasanddancers @Vi 🚀 @Chris Kunzelmann @Fabio Adorisio @Ali Torronteras

B3-CP8wBzu4 @CamerasandDancers in Copenhagen cohosted by Royal Danish Ballet (@Det Kongelige Teater), @EFFEKT Architects and their stunning Tower at @Camp Adventure, and @VisitCopenhagen. This space has been at the top of my dream list since first coming across it. This morning was specifically special as the sun came out and fall colors where stunning. These dancers were incredible in the windy morning chill. Always nice to post a series, let me know your favorite. #camerasanddancers @Filippe Moraes @Sarah Olivia Klitgaard @Alisha Brach @TheRoyalDanishBallet - Dancers @Ditte Stoltenborg Baltzer

B37bmp8B3mf @Camp Adventure is a remarkable organization in Denmark with a mission to provide people with an experience of the beauty of nature by staging nature in new ways and making it accessible. It was the perfect partnership for @CamerasandDancers in today’s day to connect with activists for climate change and use nature as a backdrop of these photos. In partnership with Royal Danish Ballet (@Det Kongelige Teater) we explored the green campus as the fall leaves were changing colors. #camerasanddancers @VisitCopenhagen @Oliver Marcus Starpov @Sarah Olivia Klitgaard @Holly Dorger Principal Dancer @TheRoyalDanishBallet - Dancers @Ditte Stoltenborg Baltzer @Nico Janssen @Giordana Gallo

B3v1jU8BKan Next stop on our European @CamerasandDancers tour is Berlin, Germany. I was so excited to return to this city and partner with my friend @konaction as well as @Staatsballett Berlin. We normally chose a museum or cultural institution as a venue. But for Berlin, Konrad and I chose this car park in the ICC (International Convention Center)- an abandoned convention building that is futuristic and gritty and represents the architecture of the city. We explored this space while the sun was rising. #camerasanddancers @Marco Arena @𝒢𝓇𝑒𝑔𝑜𝓇 𝒢𝓁𝑜𝒸𝓀𝑒 @Yi-Chi Lee 李奕騏 @visitBerlin @Yuria Isaka 井阪友里愛 @Paulina Bidzińska

B2N6RothX1x Studying Pose. For me, dance photography has been a constant exploration of discovering new ways to capture a physical position. Along the way, I have learned how to utilize light, focus, backgrounds and architecture. For this next series I wanted to focus on one location, Venice Handball Courts, and choreograph as many positions as possible.
