Artist's statement

Steven Heathcote will be remembered historically as one of the best principal dancers in the Australian Ballet. He has captured my attention for years and since he has recently retired I thought it important to photograph him away from the ballet in the quiet intimacy of the studio. In this portrait, Steven expresses dignity and grace. He is a true artist.
