Many artists and photographers have attempted to capture dancing in a still image. Some go for the alignment of a pose and others emphasize the physique of the dancer. When I was seeking out photographers to include in ‘The Photographer’s Series’ I wanted to find photographers who were exploring new and innovative ways of capturing images.
When I first connected with photographer Pasquale ‘Marco’ Veltri he told me he wanted to capture the essence of movement using a new technique he called ‘blurry images’.
Curious about how he would do this, I volunteered to dance for one of his photoshoots.
Here is the result of our photoshoot…
As Marco got me dancing he snapped away and even got the camera dancing too. He wanted to find out what would happen if both the dancer and the camera were moving. The whole thing felt like a grand experiment.
I learned first hand that Marco’s true nature is a creative explorer. He diligently seeks interesting and innovative ways to capture a visual image so it can communicate a conceptual idea or creative narrative.
When I did see the final results from our photoshoot I was surprised at the beauty and energy he was able to capture. There is an abstract quality that illustrates the energy of dancing. It feels like the dancer and the dancing are one~ poetry in motion!
It made sense when I found out the Marco is also a filmmaker and recently one of his short films was screened at Cannes Film Festival. He is definitely a creative talent on the move.
