BLINDFUL


Back in May I teamed up with Ciara McMullan on a collaborative project for dance company Blindful. Abbie Madden is GirlBoss behind blindful and approached me to work with her after seeing my work with Beauty Sleep online. We met up for a coffee and chat, and planned to shoot the following week with intentions of involving 4 performers (Rachel Sofley, Ryan O'Neill, Emmen Donnelly) and photographer Ciara McMullan.

The shoot took place in the basement of Viva Retro - where the old AU parties took place. It was a wreck, with lots of random junk scattered about the place. I had actually taken part at a different shoot in this location for my friend's band video (HERE). The dancers wore white on white on white and took it in turns to toss and throw the powder as they moved around the space. It was an awful lot of Beyoncé, but so beautiful to watch the talented dancers bend and pull shapes. 

I've seen Ciara's portfolio for this project and her images are just spectacular. You can check them out on the Facebook page for Blindful, and soon coming to the Blindful website too.

Since starting to work on this project together, I have gotten to know Abbie better and worked with her on a different project by Katie Richardson in the Mac called Murmur. She is a talented woman and she has so much passion and drive when it comes to performing, I know she has a bright future ahead of her.  Abbie hopes to work again with Katie Richardson on the ToBeBeautiful movement, and will continue to be working hard with all inclusive dance projects.
