Marie-Lisette Cropp is a Berlin-based fine art & editorial photographer, whose personal work faces different gender issues and topics within society. The series ‘Trust’ explores the abuse & suffering dancers are constantly expected to inflict on their body.
Abusing our bodies as dancers is so normalised that it takes years to realise it or even come close to a point of realisation.

Most of the time you are constantly aiming for a perfection that doesn’t belong to you, jeopardising your mental and physical health. Your body and qualities should be rated perfect as they are.
