I've met some incredible performers through Lache and the Fly Unfeathered shows, and one of those people was Mary with Illuminatra. She invited me out to photograph their performances at a private party at Casa Cartel, and... just WOW! I love photographing performance art, but this setting was just a whole 'nother level of sweet. They did everything from fire spinning acts to different aerials, and even had a big inflatable ball in the pool they could climb inside. It was a lot to take in, but I am so glad I got to be a part of capturing the magic. Check out my favorites from the shoot below, and let me know if you have some performance art you'd like me to capture!
