Magnolia Tree | Pointe of View


Every Monday, I feature an image and backstory from my Pointe of View series. For more, view all these ballerina posts or visit the Pointe of View store.

I love magnolia trees. Every spring on campus, these big trees with their waxy leaves would burst into bloom, the big white flowers throwing their fragrance into the air. Last year while back at Duke, I seized the opportunity to photograph Karson, a beautiful ballerina, on East Campus with one of these bold trees. It’s a scene out of a story book.
