If you're feeling blue, then this photography series by Akasha Rabut is sure to cheer you up. Titled 'Edna Karr,' after the New Orleans high school where the photos were taken, the series documents the behind-the-scenes world of cheerleading.
If you're entire knowledge about the popular sport and after-school activity comes from Bring It On ("This is not a democracy, it's a cheerocracy"), then you might be surprised that the photos don't reveal any hidden drama. Instead, the images radiate with a pure, unadulterated form of joy.
Whether it's photos of cheerleaders lounging idly during a break from practice, applying lipstick in the locker room or busily texting their non-cheerleader friends, the photos betray a sense of fun that makes me wonder why I never tried out for the team.
