Living in Japan has given me the chance to meet new people and get to know a little about them. This is exactly what happened when I first met Ambre and her boyfriend. We met during a couple photoshoot I did for them at Roppongi Hills in Tokyo (read more about that beautiful day). Fast forward a few months later to the spring of 2020. Knowing Ambre was a dancer, I contacted her to ask about ballerinas. I asked if she knew anyone in her dance club that would like to collaborate with me and bring my photography side-project to life. This is how I got to know her story, her passion for dancing, and just how far back it went (to when she was a very young child). After explaining my ideas to her (not very precisely, I should say) she was completely on board with my project. Beyond my expectations, she also introduced me to her friend, Sayako, who is also an amazing ballet dancer.
