The Ballerina Project, FTW.

The Ballerina Project is the best thing to ever happen. This collaboration of city + dance + photography, is an artistic endevour which grew from the idea of New York City as a magnet for creativity. Each photograph is a collaborative work of dance, fashion design and photography played out against the city's landscape. Some of the shots were taken in Boston, but most were in New York City.

Dane Shatagi, The founder of the project, posted a note on the fan page about their decision to end the project. It sounds like it was just hard to get the shots he wanted and capture the same emotions while having to change dancers a lot and work around busy schedules. Either way, I'm glad it happened while it did, and we are left with the beautiful photos.
