I used to be a dancer in a former life. A hip hop one, and I was lucky enough to travel the country and get paid to do it. That was a long time ago when I could spin on my head and bop like a mofo.
I met Zoe when I shot Les Folies De L'amour burlesque dance group with my good friend Dan Horne. Somehow Dan and I managed to cram all our photography gear into an elevator, that was a fun game of Tetris.
I remember walking in and all the girls were sitting on the floor doing their makeup. Zoe and Rebecca stood up and came to say hello. They were very welcoming. They told me how long they had been dancing which seemed to be all their lives. They loved to dance and you could tell. They smiled the entire time we were there.
A few months later Zoe contacted me asking to shoot again and we came up with this concept with a design made by my makeup artist/designer friend Erin Kelly. Zoe is full of passionate expression. Comfortable in her nature, bursting with life. She is now shimmying the night away in London. I'm lucky enough to be going to Mexico with her next year to create more art.
