D&OD

Dance and Other Drugs. My inspiration for this project came from reading a book in high school called The Element. In this book it told the true story of a woman named Julianne, whose mother though she had a problem focusing in school. When visiting a specialist, the man left music on and left the room. He went and grabbed her mother to look in the room to see Julianne dancing. He then told her mother, "Your daughter doesn't have a problem, she is a dancer." Julianne then went on to be the most highly recognized choreographer of our time. I use to be a dancer in high school so I wanted to showcase a talented dancer and a talented photographer and art direct and edit a series of photographs. This series encompasses both the surreal and realistic world of dance.
