Ballerina + Beach, Triple Image, Santa Maria del Mar, Cuba, Summer of 2014


Lost in scanning negatives this evening once again, yet another day with the magnificent one below. How many photographers can be blessed with such a gift in front of their camera? 

Within a span of seconds she produces three priceless images one after the other on this roll of film, and this after a full session out of the water. During my time with her this summer she offered to come along with us almost every day, whether we were photographing her or someone else. She just wanted to be a part of it all, and accepted any vision we had for her while at the same time expressing a vision of her own.

She is truly sublime, perfect without trying to be.

Note: These exposures were made with a Fuji GA645Zi onto Fuji Neopan Acros 100 ISO film.
