The Hubbard sisters came out to my property winter of 2016 and during that photo session, alight switched on inside my head about a great photo series that would feature dancers along different points of the Yadkin River.- in some of the series, the dancers would be aligned with the beauty of our river and in other photographs, and the dancers would be a contrast to areas of the river that are threatened. The project, "Dance for the River" has gained some steam and funding support through the Yadkin Cultural Arts center and the Yadkin Riverkeeper. The series will open in October of 2017 at the Cultural Arts Center in Yadkinville, and I can't wait to see it all come together! I wanted to feature Lexi and Katherine in the project, since they braved the cold of our riverside trails in tutu's and tights that one winter day.
I had my eye on the bridge that goes over the Yadkin River on hwy 67 for a long time for part of this series. Donnaha was quiet the day we were there, but it usually is the playground of many Hispanic families, kayakers, and fishermen.
