Nicole Pierce, an extraordinary modern dancer, choreographer, dance instructor, and founder of EgoArt, Inc
., has been a favorite subject of mine for many years. I photographed her on Sunday mornings every few months – sometimes more frequently.
I was free to shoot Nicole while she put together her weekly dance class at Green Street Studios (RIP) in Cambridge, MA. She didn’t stop to pose for me, so in a sense my process was the same as when I photographed in city streets. I like the spontaneity of the ever-changing present, never quite sure what the next instant will bring.
She was the star of my comic book, "The Dancer as the Invisible Girl."
