Overview

The City is a Choreography

Melissa’s landmark project and publication 'The City Is A Choreography' explores how we connect meaningfully to our built environment. Photographed over three years, in cities around the world from Berlin to Los Angeles, Melissa uses her background in dance and documentary photography to address what it means to belong to a place. On this subject, she says, "I see the city as a place of constant movement, a rhythm we become part of once we step on to the streets".
