Everyone is quite jolly at the state fair. I got there when it first opened and by the time I left at noon, it was wall to wall jolly people. No one was dying from exploding camera flashes or falling ice blocks as seen in A Million Ways to Die in the West. But traditional crafts, crops, and animal husbandry were well represented amidst all the souvenir and food emporiums (I had to try the jello salad ice cream). My favorites were the animal barns and the fine art building.

The expressive power of the human body in both pose and movement is infinite. My goal in photographing dance performance is to capture those transformative moments when choreography, music, and the dancer come together to elevate our sensory, emotional, and intellectual experience as well as our humanity. The following images are from my exhibit of dance photography at the Indian Hill Music Center in Littleton, Massachusetts.
Thank you to everyone who came to the opening. Thank you to Erica Mash for taking photos at the opening.
Meet the Dancers
Abraham in Motion
The Boston Globe named the company’s performance of Pavement at Jacob’s Pillow in August, 2013 one of the year’s best dance performances. Later in 2013 founder Kyle Abraham received a MacArthur Foundation genius grant. Pavement tells the stories of urban Pittsburgh using vivid dance imagery and a very cool soundtrack ranging from Vivaldi to the blues to electronica.
Musette, Mistress of Mischief and Smokey Robinson
I photographed these talented performers from the Flying Poodles Big Sexy Circus at the Amsterdam Bar in St. Paul, MN. on April 25, 2013.
The show was very funny and the skill level of the performers in aerials, acrobatics, hooping, and dancing was impressive.
Check out the great costumes!
