Ballerina + Beach, Santa Maria del Mar, Cuba, Summer of 2013


A beach, a wide angle lens and her… dreaming of Cuba tonight!

This is my first time with a wide angle lens mounted onto my Hasselblad system, and will certainly lead to many more. This young woman is only twelve years old in this image and has been photographed by me for the past five years. This summer will make it six. Her level of enthusiasm is unmatched, and she needs nothing in terms of direction while she listens to the shutter of the camera as the conductor of her movements.

I adore and admire this young spirit, always will.
