I returned to this old fashioned ballroom to photograph the jazz musician John Stevens as he rehearsed with the dancer in the picture. I had been to the ballroom several times before to photograph dance classes of different types so the same distinctive place with its plastercast cupids and potted plant turn up again and again. I shot maybe two rolls of film that day so there were a lot of images. Sometimes when photographs are divorced from a specific goal it’s hard to choose between them.
