I’ve been so behind on my blogging schedule at the moment, I’ve been so busy. *Regularly scheduled posting will resume shortly* (haha). Anyway, apologies and bad jokes aside, this week I’m going to talk about “Powder Dance” by Geraldine Lamanna. This series of photographs is amazing. She photographed dancers and used powder to accentuate the power and movement of the dance itself. Lamanna coated a dance instructor and her students with powder and let them show their moves to the camera. The resulting photographs are supposed to show “echoes” of movement. Compositionally, these photographs are perfect, the composition draws you in to the middle of the frame, to the dancer’s face. The lighting is great, spotlights illuminate the dancers and the powder separately so the viewer can see both equally well.
What do you think of these?
