  • This man, rose, bathed and he did climb up upon the sand dune, and he was thankful for the sun, the sea, the sky, and he did give thanks to his god.  And Gorm did shoot it with a long lens from afar, and it was all good.
  • Madness...is to leave your body 
in order to find your soul.
It's the gorge of a precipice,
a necessary loneliness...
It is to lose yourself for an expectation,
an illusion, a dream, someone,
someone who is no one, for you
  • I’ve included these images because they contain several elements I’m very interested in – visual repetition – how the hands echo and yet differ from each other in the photo above on the right, as well as the use of the edge of frame to play with what we see and don’t see – decentering our attention – as can be seen in the photo directly above.

60 Days of Photographing Movement
18 May – 16 July 2012 ›

Welcome to Your Move

Your Move is a public photoblog project by Siobhan Davies Dance that was open for submissions for 60 days to celebrate Big Dance 2012, 18 May - 16 July 2012.

We invited the public to share photographs that celebrate the movement in their everyday lives using the world around them as inspiration. The pictures came together to create this beautiful gallery showcasing different kinds of movement.

“A photograph captures a moment within the movement and widens the imagination of what happened before and after.” Siobhan Davies
