Donate

bornadancer has started a donation pool!
5 / 100,000
Support B.A.D. and take your chance to win 5000 Points!

Since B.A.D. is a newly founded dance photography project, its continuity is solely based on personal funds and non-profit practices. What this means is that all the people who participated in the project so far are volunteers; including the stylists and models who just happen to love dancing.

Where will your points go?

By donating points to B.A.D. you help us buy some of our prints:
- 10 Gallery Wrapped Canvases (According to the current prices, we will be able to print 10 of our photographs in order to set up offline local events to promote dancing, creativity and photography through B.A.D.)
- Photo Prints (An assortment of photo prints will be given away as gifts to our wonderful dancers and all the great people who help in their own way to make the photo shoots possible!)

********************************************
As soon as the goal is reached, one lucky donor will be able to choose between a maximum of 5000 points worth of Born a Dancer prints, or 5000 for his/her DA account!
********************************************

We, Ernesto, Iakovos and Yannis, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

B.A.D. Born a Dancer
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
Greece
The art of dancing, like any other performing art, immediately strikes a personal chord of our psyche. When we are dazzled by a dancer’s performance we can feel that both our body and our mind are trying to discreetly imitate the motion; this could explain why dancing has been admired since times immemorial. Photography, by capturing this moving sensation, more often than not fascinates the viewer with the charm and vigor of imprint and immortalized motion. Be it through amateur snaps, or professional photo shoots that usually compose collected works of art, like those found in the Ballerina Project*, the admiration of a picture itself manifolds when it tries to capture the essence of “performing.”

In mid-2011, and with these stimuli in mind, three youngsters commenced a creative and educational quest around the extraordinary fields of photography. They were lucky enough to set their course for this brimming with life journey accompanied by the landscapes, the aromas, and the people of Thessaloniki; the second largest city of Greece. With diverse fascinating sites and the pulsating Greek temperament beating deeply in the city’s heart, Ernesto, Iakovos, and Yannis found not only an original combination of the Mediterranean landscape with the Balkan peninsula, but also a place that could host the first steps of B.A.D.

The B.A.D. project will keep its focus on 3 specific areas; the individual, the surroundings and of course the photographers themselves. We chose to do so because we felt that all three are related to dancing somehow; the fluidity of expression offered by the medium of photography, like any other dance, helps us “perceive” the picture and thus manifest a choreography that eventually amalgamates the surroundings with the actual dancer.

We hope that you will see, the same way we do, that in the end we are all born to be dancers…
