Pointe Shoes

Another photo shoot for my current project, but something a bit different from me!

I decided to do some still life photos of pointe shoes as these are such an important part of ballet, and an obvious symbol of it.
A massive thank you to Nikki Goldup for the shoes themselves, which she gave me months and months ago when the idea for this project was just starting to emerge. Since then they have accompanied me on every ballet related photo shoot but unfortunately not used, so I took them into the studio to photograph them as objects themselves.
