Bodies; movement; shape; light and shadow is how I would depict this latest work. With my fascination for the human body and how it can express itself physically I was able to explore this very notion, creating this series of black and white film images. My subjects were dancers from The National Dance Company Wales www.ndcwales.co.uk where I watched […]

By choosing just a small part of the images suggests how our memory […]
Oculus – series 2
