Ballerina project

I found this photo project the other day and thought it was so lovely I had to share it with you. It's by New York City-based photographer, Dane Shitagi, originally from Honolulu, and is a series of pictures of ballerinas taken over the last ten years. They all look so graceful, it makes me want to be a ballerina!
"...the Ballerina Project is not “dance photography” but an etching of a ballerinas heart and emotions.
Every aspect of the Ballerina Project is carefully crafted and cultivated. The project has  been photographed entirely on traditional photographic film and not with modern digital cameras."

Ballerina Project

They all look so calm but I'm sure it can't have been easy to hold those poses. What do you make of them?



  1. these are stunning images, they are so ethereal & serene. xxx

  2. Glad you like them...make you feel all calm, don't they?x

  3. Beautiful photos. Aren't ballerinas amazing, serene and yet so powerful, perfectly elegant and yet in agony, but it is always hidden. M x
