Have you ever seen a ball? Ballroom culture originated in New York in the 60’s, but has lately become more mainstream because of series like Pose and Legendary. If you want to know more about the history, then go watch the documentary Paris is Burning. For a modern visual, take a look at my last slide: snapshots I took at the Pride Ball organised by the House of Vineyard in Vondelpark, Amsterdam in 2019. I was inspired by ballroom dancing when I created this series Sexy Beasts. Introducing a swaggering zebra, a rocking rhino and a sensual cow showing their best poses.
