Patricia Zhou | Backstage Project
I met Patricia Zhou from the Staatsballett the other day and shot a couple of photos of her while she got ready for the show that evening. The closest I ever got to a ballet dancer so far was when I shot photos from the nutcracker last month: about 25m away from the stage, together with quite a few other press people. So this was quite different. I guess I don´ have to explain that I really enjoyed talking to and shooting Patricia that day and I hope that we´l have the chance to shoot some more.
