Reflecting back on these photographs of Leiah Luz (previous posts, instagram, fb) we made earlier in the year makes me realize how poetic every experience is with her. This is what I strive to capture as a photographer, and always the space I aim to nurture. I realize that a collaboration implicitly means it takes two to create such magic, and without such a openness of those involved, it can never be accomplished.
You should check out Leiah’s feeds on social medias because this woman is doing some pretty marvelous things with her body in motion. Yesterday I was watching her doing a handstand while in the splits with her back leg as a wave. Motivation and beauty. Right there.
