Teatro Di Recordi

Photography Series
9 Digital Prints

In this photography series, I aim to photograph La Pergola through the eye of my memories as a ballet dancer. Many personal memories of my life as a ballet dancer such as loneliness, darkness, and perfectionism, are evoked when I explore La Pergola Theater in Florence, Italy. Being a dancer in a ballet company when I was younger, my life is consumed with these visions and senses of never being good enough from the past. In La Pergola, which is built in 1656, I find myself playing scenes from my childhood in my head, and wish to capture the theater as these scenes occur within.
