This is the original inspiration for the whole photography project of The Ballerina. I was intrigued by the idea of a ballerina in her tutu dancing in the street. Mackenzie was a talented and brave model, and that vintage bookstore was a truly beautiful surprise. My personal favorite spot is the sunny reading room at the second floor.
The contrast cause by the figure and background is what made this series special.
