Instagram of the Day: Dancers on the Streets of NYC
Omar Z. Robles focuses his Instagram account on portraits of professional dancers in the streets of New York City. Robles began shooting street dancers three years ago when he moved to the USA from Puerto Rico in order to study the possibilities of the human body. While working as an actor at a pantomime theater, Robles began to understand that words are not needed to tell a story.
“New York is a curious place. Almost anywhere you stand, you’ve got a picture there. I try to use the business of the city because it contrasts very well to the softness and delicacy of the dancer,” said Robles.
