Some shoots last minutes whilst others take years. The privilege to work with the Royal Ballet School across the lower and upper houses of the Royal Ballet School was an achievement that took approximately 8 years to complete. Sometimes it was finances other times it was a refusal to enter in. Yet like with many collections I create, many are started and over years they slowly find a conclusion. This collection is a deeply moving and an emotional body of work for me. Having danced ballet for 20 years, knowing what these young boys and men are going through became a very personal journey.
