Entry Description:

In Posnania is a special photographaphic project to celebrate the
opening of Posnania Shopping Center in my hometown Poznan,
Poland.

The shoot was created on its construction site, solely by people
from Poznan, including dancers from The Poznan Ballet School and
Poznan Opera.

The idea was to show the contrast between the raw, big scale
construction site and subtle, dynamic, emotional ballet dancers.

The shoot will be presented as a limited edition book and open air
exhibition in September 2016.
