Ever since I started taking pictures of people I had a vision, an idea that kept coming back to me. So far it was my biggest project and you can not imagine how nervous I was the days before and especially on the day of this shooting… But first I want to tell you how it all began: Since I was a little girl I´m fascinated and impressed by prima ballerinas, these delicate and slim girls who seem to float magically across the dancefloor. I never wanted to dance ballet myself (I guess I always knew that I´d never be able to move as delicate and elegant as all the prima ballerinas do) but somehow I couldn´t get enough of them.
One day I sat together with my friend Isa and told her about my wish to take pictures of a dancing ballerina. She screamed beaming with joy and wanted me to call Edita immediately who was a desinger for headpieces and had the same dream. No sooner said than done and we started planning the project. We quickly found the perfect location: can you think of a scenery more ideal for a dancing ballerina than in front of the amazing windows of the WUK? Our two dear friends and ballet dancers Dajana and Verena were excited to shoot with us right away and even contributed some of the dresses. Edita Rosenrot created gorgeous headpieces and my favorite make-up artist Angie accentuated them with great make-up and beautiful hairstyles. From the moment the two prima ballerinas entered the room and stepped in front of my camera I couldn´t stop smiling.
I want to thank everyone involved in this shooting so much! I couldn´t have done it without you!
