Two Dancers + Racquetball Court, Santa Maria del Mar, Cuba, Summer of 2014


Two young dancers unknown to each other came together one morning last summer to collaborate near the beach just outside of Havana, Cuba. The older of the two is known to most of us, while the younger one was found just a few days earlier during my walk near her family's apartment. They however worked beautifully together, and helped us create this series of images.
These are two of the ballerinas for whom the present Costumes for Ballerinas in Cuba campaign is dedicated. For those interested in supporting this simple project, we have less than two weeks to reach our humble budget. We hope to surprise them this summer with a suitcase of dance outfits; and then take them to this same spot for many more sessions, at the racquetball court and on the beach a minute's walk away!
