1920’s Harlem Renaissance Inspiration Shoot

Since we are swing dancers and Harlem is the birthplace of the Lindy-Hop, we have long been fascinated by the style and music of the Harlem Renaissance. It represents a time in history where African Americans began to freely express themselves through music, art, and literature. African Americans living and creating in Harlem during the 1920’s and 30’s evoked a style and elegance which we still cherish today. We knew that we had a lot of resources to represent this period in history well, so we set forth on the adventure and recruited some of the most talented and creative artist in the industry to fulfill our vision while staying true to the era.
