Taylor Wessing Portraits

“After the Dance”

This is a mini-project I shot with the Taylor Wessing/National Portrait Gallery portrait prize in mind. Each year I go along and wonder why I haven’t entered anything so this year I was determined to get something in. I decided to shoot some of the dancers I’d shot for the Pointe Project. I wanted the portraits to be as far removed from leotards and Pointe shoes as possible this time. All the portraits were shot at the dancers homes this June. I’m really grateful to all the girls who took part. I love all the pictures but decided to enter only one, and that was ‘Katrina’. We’ll find out if it’s been picked for the exhibition in mid-August!
