Dane Shitagi: New York City Ballet Project

From Honolulu, Dane Shitagi is a New York based photographer who likes to explore the rawness of the world around him. Preferring the outdoor setting to the studio, he takes inspiration from the city and the sounds around him, including the energy and diversity to be found.

Recently he undertook a New York City Ballerina project during which he was trying to express how much of a magnet for creativity New York City is. Exploring his hardship as a creative individual, he used the project to connect with other individuals creatively and in hardship too realising that his story was part of a larger tale of the city - thus he was uncovering a true identity of the city through the expressions of the ballerina's and himself through his lens.
