post is my life
After having one of my best friends and mentors in town last week from San Francisco, I remembered a couple rolls of film that I developed and tossed aside from my time spent with him in San Francisco last summer. Robert is the director of Post:ballet in San Francisco and brings a small group of dancers from all over the US together to create, play, experiment and finally perform in a city where anything goes. He has a way of bringing out the most creative side of anyone he works with. The past three summers participating have been extremely rewarding for me and I always leave a little transformed and majorly inspired to push my own and others' boundaries. After having him in Phoenix and digging through my film, I wanted to share a little bit of the energy that the city and the people of Post:ballet bring! These are some studio shots from rehearsals I snapped on my 35 mm. Very old film and no editing.
Christian Squires- The first lady
Cray cray Ray Ray-inside the studio and out
Double exposure of Raychel taking a break on the fire escape
The other couple rolls I found were color film that I took while out playing in the city (usually promoting the shows) and on a day trip to Napa Valley.
Christian in his Sunday best
Dolores Park on a hot (rare) Sunday
Ray Ray chillin in our apartment in the TL- probably overlooking some bust at DIVAS
Road trippin across the foggy Golden Gate Bridge, through the Muir Woods to Muir beach
And finally to Napa Valley! Beautiful and full of vino!!
And last but not least, gotta throw some of the instragrams from the summer in!

Can't wait to see what Post:Ballet season 4 brings. Thanks for the inspiration Robert!!!
