Something like a modern interpretation of Marcel Duchamps ‘Nude Decending a Staircase, artist Bill Wadman has captured 9 dancers in flowing motion with long exposure photography. Wadman has recently announced on his blog that he is putting a book out and is now producing signed prints of this series titled ‘Motion.’ The seductive images have been featured worldwide in The New York Times, La Monde, Der Spiegel, Times of London, USA Today, and Corriere della Sera… to name just a few of Wadman’s fans.
Dancer Amber Bogdewiecz explains what it was like taking part in the project:
“This past month, I was fortunate enough to be in some fantastic photos for photographer Bill Wadman’s ‘Motion’ project. It was really difficult to move at the exact right speed to capture the ribbons of movement, but after a few hours, I finally figured it out. If you actually had been sitting in on the session, I would have looked like a crazy, dancing monkey trying to cross about 6 feet of space fluidly in about 6 seconds. But the photos look amazing!”
