A short Talk with Ashley Taylor (Vienna State Ballet’s photographer and ex-Dancer)

The moment you meet him you know immediately that the „chat“ is going to be an earnest one. There is a certain seriousness in his attitude towards his work, towards Art and life itself that has always impressed me – especially when you realize that you are talking to a very young man that still a whole life ahead of him.
We met in a Café in Vienna’s first district for a talk that we have been planing for quite some time.
I do believe that things happen when they must happen when the situation is right and many thoughts have really „ripened“, like beautiful fruits – perfect to be enjoyed at the right moment! Once more this notion, this „timing“ was reconfirmed.
„Ash, when have you started dancing?“ I ask casually.
