Albert Galindo - Dancer - Inaugurates My Micro StudioSunday, December 13, 2015
|Albert Galindo - December 12, 2015|
Today Saturday (this blog is being posted for tomorrow Sunday) I inaugurated my new micro studio in our house on 7th Avenue and Trutch. The house has little furniture as we are moving in slowly. But as of today the studio is operational.
My family and friends guessed (wrongly!) that my subject would be of the female kind and that she would have been in some state of undrapery. The fact is that my subject, Albert Galindo is the young and exciting male dancer who graduated from Arts Umbrella last year. He is an apprentice at Ballet BC and is hoping he will be hired on contract next year.
Galindo is from Barcelona and is half French and half Catalonian. He has the manners that you would expect of a European from Spain. His diction is perfect and like all graduates of Arts Umbrella he can indulge in conversation with ease and aplomb.
I was most excited that he accepted to pose for me. What you see here is a scan of our first Fuji Instant B+W (3200 ISO print film) which alas has been discontinued. I have kept a few boxes for special subjects like Galindo.
Galindo is a very good dancer. And I have seen many in my years. But additionally (and this is important) he has a presence. It is that double combination that makes him the one you watch on stage when surrounded by other dancers.
Thank you Albert for posing for me and for launching my little studio in what I hope is an exciting future.
