E motion 2018
Is an ongoing project that captures emotions from the motion of trained contemporary dancers. Caught mid flow in a studio setting the images demonstrate and reveal the physical agility and demands of the dance moves. Caught whilst completely absorbed in the dance movement. Full of energy vibrancy and movement the dancers are captured on film. Using light and shade in the studio context the images have great depth and detail. Many successive frames were taken and the process was slow to capture the right second to take the shot.
Included within the series are slow shutter movements where two dancers who had never met progressed in a new friendship. Although some choreographed sequences and retakes were provided upon request, the bond grew. Throughout the whole series it was something that occured for everyone involved and is something that helps make this particular work valuable.
