Images honoring the art of the human body.
At the outset my goal was to photograph how visual and performing artists use their bodies to create art - from a dancer creating the remarkable shapes envisioned by a choreographer to a ceramicist's hands forming clay into a beautiful object, to the physicality and emotions of a conductor eliciting a musical interpretation from an orchestra.
When I opened my eyes I found the art of the human body everywhere - in the athletic feats of a circus performer, in the musical phrasing of professional figure skating, in a jazz pianist's hands stretching across a keyboard. As this project progressed I developed a deep reverence for both the creative power of and within the human form and the people who express it in so many astonishing ways.
I shot these images at performance venues during rehearsals and performances, and in art studios. What I found I share with you on this web site. If my photographs evoke for you the richness and expressive power of the human body, then I have succeeded in my own creative work.
