Emma LeBlanc is a 25-year-old Rhodes Scholar from New Hampshire, studying anthropology at Oxford University. She has spent much of the past five years in Syria, documenting life there with a camera. LeBlanc took photographs of young ballerinas at a dance school in a suburb of Damascus, as a way to show daily life routines during times of conflict. Her collection of "Ballet Girls" photographs is on view at LeBlanc's old high school in Manchester, New Hampshire.
