Dance and Photography

For dance artists, it’s not easy to find a photographer who “can capture the instant of a dance and transform it into a timeless gesture.

There might be a question that photographers wrestle with when working with dance artists:

how do you convey the feeling, emotion and spirit of dance in a fixed image?

For this project, six visual artists were involved, using a variety of techniques to capture the ephemeral quality of dance. It was great lesson. The visual artists and dance artists all agreed that the photography of dance is a unique art form, one in which a split second gesture endures forever.

Project “Fog” has been realized as part of “Choreography Creation Camp” (CCC) organized by Studio 8, with the support of Drosos Foundation, EUNIC Jordan and European Union in Jordan.

What is CCC?

CCC is a pilot version of a talent incubation program that supports emerging local young choreographers, dance makers, performance directors to sustain their individual or collaborative creativity, and, in the process, finding new ways to be connected with their audiences.
