The play of light in this image is a tribute to Walt Whitman’s poem ‘A Song of Joys’. Long exposure photography of contemporary dance performances leads to surprising, revelatory and hence, joyful, experiences.
The Swiss Arts Council – Pro Helvetia – New Delhi is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2018. In 2009, Pro Helvetia organized a performance by renowned Swiss choreographer Phillipe Saire in New Delhi. I had the opportunity to photograph that performance which was an extraordinary display of movement and lighting. Some of my photographs were featured in a Pro Helvetia promotional flyer that year. As Pro Helvetia marks its tenth anniversary, the council website features one of my photos as part of a trip down memory lane.
