Here at Ignite Studios, we're hosting a monthly photography challenge. This month's prompt is "reflection".

Zoe came to the studio to create some ballet themed artwork, and asked if she could "smash" her pointe shoes into the mirror.. as an ode to smashing body image issues associated with ballet. The cracks in the mirror are photoshop- not the best, as I am continuously humbled by extensive photo manipulation, yet I kind of like that it still looks "fake" - as in, an idea, a thought, not yet brought into fruition.
