I had a desire to photograph outdoors in urban spaces, classical dance forms that are usually performed on stage. The idea was at the back of my head for over a year. In the meantime I got acquainted with Ipshita. I had photographed her on a couple of occasions when she performed in Stockholm Musikaliska and the Stockholm Cultural Festival last year.
From the moment we first met for lunch at Cafe Schweizer at Gamla Stan, I felt an instant connection with her. Until that moment I had only seen her mesmerising performances. It was after meeting her, I discovered what made her performances so mesmerising. Ipshita’s passion for life and art is contagious. Her views on life and cultures always was thought-provoking and inspiring. The more I got to know her as a person over fika’s and a movie, I knew that this is a Wonder Woman whose story I need to share!
