As my dance teacher Helena introduced me to forms I had not yet encountered.

Her training in Korea, as well as her own movement interpretations, were a style that challenged and intrigued me.

This dance photography of Helena was my way of capturing that place in time when I was learning new transitions from one shape to another, new pathways through movement.

The blur aspect of the shoot was important, as it can be those illusive moments between where the magic really happens in dance.

I fear not the blur, I embrace it – after all, dance is about movement, where the split second is an endless reel of shapely travel.

Here is my capture of small occasions that tell of the larger picture of Helena.
