Dance Workshop

Over a two-week period I had the opportunity - along with other visual artists - to observe professional dancers in rehearsal. They were creating a piece for public performance which was to be part of a work called UK Rocks.

Working with a camera was in some ways contrary: dance is time-based and is about movement. By contrast, the camera works in the twinkling of an eye, freezing time.

Ultimately these photographs seem to be about the floor. The dancers themselves are largely depersonalised, reduced to movement and pace. Only the choreographer is recognisable.
