Arts Umbrella Dance - Sunday Feb 3, 2019Tuesday, February 05, 2019
At the most my knowledge of dance is perfunctory. I became mesmerized by dance in December 1995 when I spent a couple of days taking photographs of Evelyn Hart. Since then I have photographed many dancers, females and males. Most of these photographs were portraits in my studio.
It wasn’t until I started going to Arts Umbrella Dance Company’s Sunday Performance Series that my photographs were no longer portraits but something else. Not having to produce a photograph for publication meant I could do as I please and to experiment.
That was the case this past February 3, 2019. In other Sunday Series I always managed to witness practice sessions and thus know when key moments in each dance would happen. On Sunday I had one obligation which was to take photographs of my 16 year-old granddaughter Lauren who has been dancing at Arts Umbrella since she was 7.
The real fun of taking these photographs is to download them at home and see which ones meet my interest.
