I love music, photography, and dance and when they come together I am in my happy place.  So when I hear an amazing song, the first thing I think of is choreography and then I think of how I can capture it so it will last forever.  That is basically what happened the first time I heared Noah Gundersen's song, "Fire."  It is a chilling yet beautiful song about a boy's coming of age and his understanding of sin and it's grip on his life.  In the end, even though he finds Jesus "in the rags of poverty," he still chooses to find freedom "in the wild eyes of the dancing girls" (prostitution) and "in the open arms of America."  I shot these photos at Church of the Redeemer in Nashville and a huge thanks Anna and her friends for modeling for me.
