Young Girl, Pan American Stadium, Havana, Cuba, Summer of 2014


This young girl, known to many of you, has been photographed in this manner since our first time together more than four years ago. Her features and her ability to express herself have always impressed me deeply, never allowing me to be any further from her in my documentation of both.
Through the school of ballet I met her, so it only seems fitting to add her to this past week's posts of images. Her sister was a ballerina in the same school from which most of my present dancers take classes. When we arrived years ago looking for her sister, it was this young girl who entered the room with her eyes as bright as the sun, and with the most incredible enthusiasm to be photographed.
This past winter she turned 15 and we will celebrate this most important of birthdays with yet another summer of photography.
