Aloft – acrobatic dance moves captured in minimalist black and white by Christopher Peddecord.
Christopher Peddecord is a former professional dancer, short-form choreographer, and Internationally recognized photographer. Based on his long-standing profession, his photographic work depicts the aesthetics and indescribable acrobatic performances of professional dancers. Already shot between 2010 and 2011, Christopher Peddecord’s ‘Aloft’ series originally began as a study of simplicity. Without colors and background, his aim was to reduce each image to the essentials in order to put the full focus on the respective dance performance. Furthermore, the images have been shot using a single lens and a single light. It was a great challenge for both the dancers and himself to be completely committed to visualize the anatomy of the body as well as the acrobatic beauty of each movement in just one frame.
A few images of the series can be found below. For more of Christopher Peddecord’s photographic work, please have a look at his website.
