Nandi was born in the beautiful country of Nicaragua; she embodies the soulful spirit of a dancer and painter.
We sat down over coffee a month before her shoot and it was at that time I learned how inspiring Nandi truly is. I was fascinated to know more about her as a performer and an artist. Nandi’s work as a painter and dancer comes from a very special place from deep within. I learned that when she dances, it is to awaken the spirit inside through vibrational movements that translate to the outside world. As a performer, she relates uniquely to each and everything in her environment because we are all interconnected in some form.
I wanted to capture her in a way that best represented her passion and artistry. When I see Nandi, I see a dramatic force within her with a hint of softness that comes through vividly in her dance and paintings. She dances like she paints; fluidly, free form, and with an open heart.
At the end of this shoot we both walked away feeling as though magic was created. Nandi revealed her soul and passion to me during this shoot through her dance movements and awe-inspiring paintings which were filled with color and feeling. Thank you Nandi for letting me see your beauty.
I encourage you to check out more of her work on her website and be inspired. To see more of Nandi's photo shoot, please feel free to visit the gallery.
