Photographing the Jefferson Dancers

I love collaborating with dancers. Every year I get to work with the Jefferson Dancers on their poster image, and every year we try something new. For their 40th Anniversary season, we created an image that showcases both their creative energy, and their community focus.

This year I was able to attend their spring performance at the Newmark Theater. Not only was it an energetic creative rush, but at the end of one of their big numbers, they flew to the front of the stage and recreated my poster image (above). Blew my mind.

I can’t wait for next year.
