Reimagining Movement

Introduction

DanceEast brought Chris Nash to Ipswich to work with a group of young photographers and some of the best youth dance talent from the region. DanceEast theatre provided the space for two days exploring techniques for photographing movement in a range of light levels. The result is Reimagining Movement, an exhibition of twenty-one images, supported by the Arts Council of England and coinciding with the celebration of U. Dance 2018 taking place in Ipswich.

I have danced since I was 3 years old and I have always been interested in photography. This inspired me to participate in Chris Nash’s workshop as it allowed me to combine and reflect both of my interests and helped towards by A Level Photography.

I got my first compact camera for my 8th birthday and from then onwards photography started to become a greater interest as I grew up. Completing an Art GCSE and having to support my work with photographs continued to develop my interest in photography, alongside continuing to capture photographs in my free time

I am inspired by photographers such as Charlotte Patmore, who shoots bands and fashion based imagery, and Elizaveta Porodina due to her vibrant ever-changing works. [Read more]

Photography has always been a fond hobby of mine and I have used it as a creative outlet particularly in the last five to six years. I am a self taught photographer; when doing media and publicity for various past shows and choreographic projects, I spent a lot of time learning about my sisters camera to be able to take the best pictures possible. As a training dancer, photographing a moving performer is something which has intrigued me for a long time. [Read more]
