ULYSSES & WILSON

The twisting bodies of Ulysses and Wilson during a dance rehearsal taken many years ago was an opportunity to experiment with long exposure photography. The two accomplished and eager dancers were connected tenuously with a piece of material as they both moved and stretched to create tension between each other. From a photographic viewpoint, if the tension was lost, the image became static and uninteresting. It was as if tension was what created excitement and visual interest. This could reflect our constant state of flux in our lives in order to progress and evolve to the next stage.

Photographed using the Contax 139 matched with the 28mm Carl Zeiss lens. Shot on Kodak TMax400 film.
