‘Dancers and their Cities’ started as a pilot project in Portugal, in 2019. My passion for dance photography took me to challenge dancers of all styles to create a non-commercial project where they could express their art through photography. At the same time, it allowed me to enjoy another passion, taking me to travel among beautiful cities and rediscovering them with a photographic look.
Since I moved to Poland in 2020, I had the chance to visit and develop sessions in Kazimierz Dolny, Gdańsk, Gdynia, Sopot, Łódż, Warsaw and Wrocław. For the time being, I have decided to pause this project but the website will remain active as a really sweet memory of all these moments.
I would like to dedicate this project to all the dancers, parents, professionals and schools that actively contributed to it; and also, to a very special dancer who was always my inspiration even though I never had the opportunity to photograph her.
...an ode to unrepeatable moments
The interaction between two forms of art is one of the most rewarding acts of spontaneous creation. When a dancer begins to interact with the environment in an improvised way is always something unique and, in a way, ethereal. Only a camera can witness and register this unique moment of artistic body expression. To find the best angle, to highlight this specific moment, and to give due significance to the environment that surrounds the dancer makes street dance photography always new and extremely rewarding for me.
