I met Hannah last year at my local Gyrotonic gym, Center Gyrotonic. She’s been working there part time, around her school schedule, so I’ve chatted with her now and then about art and dance. The owners trust her so much that she runs the place by herself on Saturdays. No wonder; she’s a sharp, intelligent young lady, who also has an internship at the Portland Art Museum.
She didn’t know this until I told her so today, but I’ve wanted to photograph her since the first time I saw her. There’s something about dancers…they know how to move, and the grace of their movements translates well even into still photographs. So I was delighted when she told me she’d like to have me photograph her senior portraits here in Portland. My intuition proved correct; she was a natural, and we had a wonderful time working together on a surprisingly sunny October Saturday.
