Colours and forms. Magic. Dance?
The photographic artist Kornelia Boje shows us dance as we’ve never seen it before.

The magic of her works stems from an unusual composition of colour and movement. Her work confirms yet again the highly subjective nature of how we experience dance and movement.

The artistic rendering of dance into image is in Boje’s blood. Her father, the photographer Walter Boje, tried in the 1960s to translate the fascination of dance into the language of the image using a free combination of colour and form. Boje extended her father’s understanding of photography and dance, adding her own modern spin through the interplay of film and digital image editing.

About her work she says: "Photographing dance is a way for me to give novel expression to my own yearning for movement—very much in the spirit of my father, who, particularly in his dance photography, uses colour as a form of expression."
