    Reflections of life. Adoption the struggle between Nurture and Nature. How do you cope with the feeling you dont belong anywhere. Always in between two worlds. To win this flight, Maria followed her dream of becoming the best Flamenco dancer in Spain. And she did. She allowed me into her life, to capture her struggle. When she is dancing she is free. This picture shows the power of music.

    "Always in between two worlds." I love this sentence in your caption because I think you beautifully captured this sentiment in Maria's portrait. There is this realm of "belonging" that might be symbolized in her home while the fabric flying through the frame connects that sense of home to Flamenco dancing by the images on her wall. I love it.
