I had worked with Jimmy and Luz before and when I needed a duo for my Poetry of Motion project Jimmy and Luz were the first couple I thought of. They are both creative and talented dancers and this shoot stands out in my mind as one of the most enjoyable on a creative level. We started shooting on an early spring morning in Georgetown, Washington DC. We began shooting near the Swedish Embassy as the waterfront was under repair from the spring flooding along the Potomac. Following the Embassy shoot, Jimmy asked if we could do a few shots in the street, I jumped at the chance seeing as the Whitehurst Freeway is an elevated roadway over K St that made for some spectacular Black and White images. We then moved onto the busy main thoroughfare of M St where Jimmy and Luz’s street dancing gathered quite a crowd. I really enjoyed working again with this great couple and look forward to working with them again in the future.
We hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoying sharing them with you and we hope you consider supporting this project to bring the beauty of dance to a wider audience by purchasing one of our limited edition prints at our website: www.bpaydenphotography.com/store
