‘Luminosa’ by Parish Kohanim
In 2007, while living in the United States, I was invited to work with renowned fine arts photographer Parish Kohanim on a limited edition coffee table book entitled “Lumiosa”. The project was to be photographed along side a handful of diverse artists hand picked by Parish from around the world, and to collaborate with several other gymnasts, dancers, aerialists and Cirque Du Soleil performers.
Over 3 days we worked around the clock. I was partnered with Stephan Choinere in Atlanta Georgia in Parish’s private photographic studio to produce these amazing images. One of the most demanding shoots I have even worked on and I am looking forward to the final publication.
Once in a lifetime …..
"IT'S NOT OFTEN THAT ONE GETS A CHANCE TO WORK ON A ONCE IN A LIFETIME PROJECT. THIS EXACTLY WHAT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON FOR 8 1/2 YEARS WITH THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY, TALENTED AND COMMITTED PERFORMERS WHOSE ABILITIES AND ART REACH FAR BEYOND GYMNASTICS, DANCE AND BALLET.
IT HAS BEEN THE MOST PROFOUND PLEASURE FOR ME TO WORK WITH SUCH GIFTED AND EXCEPTIONAL OLYMPIANS OF A DIFFERENT LEVEL FOR MY UPCOMING UNIQUE, VERY ELEGANT, LIMITED EDITION COFFEE TABLE BOOK " LUMINOSA ", WHICH WILL BE PUBLISHED BY MID 2017. I'M FOREVER GRATEFUL FOR THERE ENDLESS AND TIMELESS CONTRIBUTIONS"
