Smoky Mountain Dance Session

I was on vacation in the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee and found some abandoned space that had been devoured by a fire a couple years previously. The Appalachian Ballet’s Kylie Morton Berry agreed to do an Urban Portraits Series shoot with me, and I thought this location would be ideal.

Much of the foliage has already grown back and thriving, but the buildings have been left bare. As a Chicago dance photographer, I just felt compelled to use this location.

Enjoy the images!
