The latest work of photographer, Sherrie Nickol, Portraits of Lindsey captures the personality of a young dancer in beautiful monochrome shots. Sherrie explains: “This past June while working on my Portraits of Dancers series, as the photographer in residence for Springboard Danse Montréal, I decided to ask some of the young dancers if they would sit for a portrait session outside of the dance studio setting.

“Back in New York City, Lindsey was my first subject – we spent an afternoon together exploring ways to visualise how she felt being a dancer.

“In Lindsey’s own words: For me, dance is a daily practice. It is a space for drinking in energy and responding with grit. As dancers spend our daily hours gathering, puzzle solving, letting go, pushing, supporting, seeking, holding space, demons, welcoming spontaneity. We do dishes with the angels. It is my moving meditation.”
