The Maria Rutkowska 'Balance' project draws its strength from displaying the physical powers of femmes. The series of captures was created by graphic designer and photographer Maria Rutkowska. These body-bending models have a magical quality to them as they are composed with artful athleticism. Each shot shows not only the capability of the models but their inner grace with their movements being a mix of contemporary dance, classical ballet, and martial arts.

The movements are countered by the concrete environment as Rutkowska captures the models atop the Marseille Housing Unit’s rooftop. The strong architecture acts as juxtaposition to these exquisite movements, but begin to replicate them. Through the curving structure mirrors the dynamic gestures of the females making the Maria Rutkowska 'Balance' project a truly captivating series.
