Photos of Julia / by Sarah Holden

I wanted to share some images that I took this past Autumn with a dancer named Julia.  At the time of these photoshoots she was getting her Masters in Dance at Case Western Reserve University.  Originally from Spain, she's since left the U.S. to return to Europe.  

It was interesting to hear her perspective on dance in America and at Case Western.  She is personally drawn towards the feelings and emotions of dance as opposed to its physical and technical facets.  This attitude was very apparent while we were photographing and comes across in the final images.  I became inspired while working with her to explore the possibilities of conveying emotion through my craft.  I believe that meeting Julia has influenced my next couple of personal projects.  This is one of my favorite things about photography, meeting people that ultimately influence my work and the way I view it.
