This visual project from dancer Renaldo Maurice is a collaboration between him, photographer/videographer Danica Paulos (@danfreaka), and Jacquelin Harris (@jacquelinh) who assisted. It was created to fuse fashion with dance while emphasizing the beauty of improvised movement in a natural environment.
Renaldo Maurice tells us: “Danica reached out and asked if she could film me doing the two things she sees that I’m passionate about, fashion and dance. We shot four different looks in a park in Mannheim, Germany which only took an hour. (..) The entire process was organic from beginning to end, and we hope the video will inspire and motivate freedom of expression to anyone who watches.”
