Light and shadow filter through flaxen hair and billowing fabric, playing over sinew and grace; a celebration of spirit in quietude and in flight.
Dancescapes: capturing the drama of the human form in motion – within the splendor of nature and human creations.
Nearly one hundred color and black-and-white dance photographs shot throughout 2007, this collection was captured on the coastlines, rivers and mountaintops within the state and national parks – and urban oases – of Georgia and Florida.
We hope you enjoy it.
