‘I especially cherish my sessions working with dancers. The years of training give them an innate body awareness that I rarely see elsewhere. The sculptural shapes dancers create with their body are, for me, a sight of great beauty.’
Michael’s work is truly magnificent. Each image breath taking with Michael a master at capturing bodies in motion. What I love so much about his work is that even when shooting men, many whom are dancers, flying through the air or in moments requiring brutal strength and energy there is always a quiet beauty. It is as if Michael, through his images, is able to press pause during an extraordinary moment, allowing the viewer to savour the calm and beauty of that split second of motion.
