In Motion

No, these photos were not an accident. When a dancer dances, the movement can be like one fluid line, and photographer William George Wadman captures this ideal in his series, Motion. With the use of long exposures, the result is a hazy play-by-play of each twirl, jump, and dip, to absolutely stunning results. According to one of the featured dancers, “It was really difficult to move at the exact right speed to capture the ribbons of movement, but after a few hours, I finally figured it out. If you actually had been sitting in on the session, I would have looked like a crazy, dancing monkey trying to cross about six feet of space fluidly in about six seconds.”

Luckily it worked, and beautifully, I might add.
