These photographs seek to go beyond documenting the artistry and athleticism of the dancers and to explore their emotions and allow the viewer to interpret the images through their own perceptions.

All images are captured in a darkened studio with a combination of constant and strobe light sources and all are created in the camera at the moment of performance. There is no photoshop manipulation of the images.

There are angels, subtle and engaging, graceful and light with gossamer wings; the movements bursting with energy, light and mystery; a trilogy of swans, the essence of the graceful classical dancer; the emotives spinning, aging and bursting to be free; and ‘monsters’ and ‘graces’ seemingly opposite but bound by the magic of dance.
