After New York, Mexico, and Cuba, photographer Omar Z. Robles goes home with his set of ballet photos in Puerto Rico. As usual, the talented photographer recruited local ballerinas to participate in his shoot, capturing them in the urban landscape for breathtaking ballet dancer photos.

“These photographs carry a weight far more important than any other place I’ve visited recently,” Robles writes. “These photos are the way I bring home back with me.”

By injecting such personal experience into his work, Robles’ latest set of dance photography becomes that much more poignant. As the ballerinas shape their bodies, they are somehow also paying homage to the photographer’s past, creating art from the places that shaped his life.
