Entry Description

A dancer expresses through movement. Marlo Fisken, the model, explained to me that shape is like language--and just like words, shape can also lie. To a dancer, seeing movement that doesn't belong is like being lied to. I had to learn more; I had to capture her meaning within photography. Marlo is a renowned dancer who travels and teaches ten months a year all over the world. To photograph her, I had to follow her wherever she was. We've spent over two years creating images that communicate true movement. I hope you can hear what she is saying.
