Color Charcoaled Dancer reflects the creativity of blending painting and photography.
I have always been inspired by bodies in motion and wanted movement to transpire in my pictures.
With this intent I used a large tampered glass panel on which I mixed paints and lights while a model moved behind it.
The light coming through the colors created a new atmosphere while the model’s moving body was constantly altered by the colored wall of glass. It also put her in and out of focus, accentuating the painting effect.
The results were almost unsettling. Where did the photo end and the painting begin?
