    New York City-based photographer Dane Shitagi started photographing ballerinas nearly 14 years ago, and his images have gone from the serene backdrop of a Hawaiian waterfall to grittier streets of major urban locations.

    Shitagi has now amassed a huge collection of beautiful ballerina photographs, and at an average of 40 photo shoots per year, his venture is massive.

    Here is subject is dancer Claire Unabia in Manoa Falls, Honolulu.
