I/Eye: On Photography

Dancing Figure: 3 views

Posted in Ordinary Dancers by Sheila Newbery on September 18, 2009

These black & white images are connected to a growing body of work I call Ordinary Dancers. They’re printed from large format negatives and show my friend and former landlord, Jason, dancing. Taken when I was still at the Magnolia Street studio in West Oakland. (You can see a still portrait of him here.)
