Stillness in Motion

Essay 205 • Oct 6th 2017

Shooting with Ania Catherine simply felt right, like it was designed to happen. Ania is a choreographer; but really she is a lot more than that. Beyond her undeniable talent in all genres of dancing, she is a master of movement and body language, and I have always strived to capture the subtleties and deeply-rooted emotions she conveys. The goal of this photoshoot was for us to explore motion and feelings through stillness, before her and I would set off to capture it on video.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, it certainly was worth a thousand movements, with Ania in front of my lens.
