In order to present her for this series, I photographed her with what the street offered me; an old cadillac - the ideal symbol of America. It nourishes the timelessness of my work, linking past and present. Annalee used the structure of the basketball court to express her Art by freezing the movement with my direction. Then, she danced with talent, without music. I admired her expressing her Art and I tried to film her.
She edited the files...
