Emma Portner

There are some people in this world who are so wholly beautiful and themselves that it can inspire you in such a profound way, but also make you feel so inadequate.  Emma Portner is among those people. Not only is she one of THE MOST brilliant dancers that lives and breathes on this planet, she is also an incredible photographer. Some people are just mean’t to share who they are, and nothing can hold them down.

I have known Emma for years. Hailing from Ottawa, she moved to New York City to live out her dreams, but you could argue that she is a gypsy-nomad of sorts. She travels all over North America sharing her dancing brilliance, and documenting some beautiful moments along the way. I feel elated knowing someone who stays so true to their art, and really lives and breathes it every day.  There is nothing disingenuous about this young girl with an old soul. There is something to be said about a person who is fearless, and so unrelenting in all that they do.

If you haven’t checked out her work, both in dance and photography, you should. You will not be disappointed.
