Portrait in Motion

This is Dava. I did not meet her in the role of a dancer, but I am very much looking forward to finally seeing her dance when the Stephen Petronio Company performs at The Joyce from April 30 – May 5.

One of the great pleasures of shooting the portrait of a person who dances is his or her ability to express so much feeling and, and at the same time, remain absolutely still. The elegance and nuance Dava communicated during our shoot is still memorable. It will be amazing to see her set it all in motion.
