As a storyteller, movement fascinates me. That may seem a bit strange at first when you stop to think that as I practice Professional Photography in NYC, I use a camera which freezes motion. You might think that since motion enthralls me so very much, then a video camera should serve me better. Not so – not for me! Ever since my camera and I journeyed to southern Africa right at the end high school, I have used it to capture incredible scenes of motion and the awesome stories they tell. For well over 15 years and across 6 continents, I have had the chance to gain invaluable experience in photography and hone my skills – some of which I know are innate to me and others which I have gained from formal study of photography at the tertiary level. I use that experience and those skills daily in my pursuit to become the best in Professional Photography in NYC. A big part of the work I do in New York involves performance event photography and it is here that my passion for movement is rewarded time and again. Performances in the arts and culture abound in New York City, and one such event is the Indo-American Arts Council’s annual Festival of Indian Dance. The Council seeks to put the many facets of Indian dance on display as a way to share an appreciation of its importance to the culture it derives from and represents. The Council accomplishes this through a series of informative lectures, rousing panel discussions, interactive dance sessions and energized performances. The energy of the dancers in the photo shown is palpable as they move across the stage at Ailey Citigroup Theater in Manhattan, NY performing Transitions and Translocations at the Festival. The details of the individual dancers may not be clear, but – they do not need to be. The photo is about the dance as a whole and about how the dancers and their movements have breathtakingly become one!
