Maximum joy is the latest theme for Riposte Magazine’s issue thirteen, in response to the world feeling depressing. I have produced a print editorial feature based off on ‘contemporary dance soothing solitude’. Throughout the photographic series, we see a relationship with nature & how one is in a higher consciousness reconnecting with her deepest humanity & with the natural world, through the world of contemporary dance, which quickens into her muse and companion. By setting aside dependent emotions and constricting compromises, Ilana frees herself up for creativity & spirituality.
