Product Description

John Sobczak has always been about photographing people and capturing who they are. From well known, notable individuals of the day, like Muhammed Ali, Gordie Howie, Lily Tomlin and Jeff Daniels, to intriguing people who make the everyday world special through their craft and actions. John helps reveal and express the essence of who they are. In his many books and other personal and commercial projects John has collaborated with a variety of talented people, including writers, actors musicians and, now dancers. John’s work has received numerous awards and has been showcased in several exhibits. His images are part of the permanent collection of two major museums. The Detroit Institute of Arts and the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Having photographed many dancers and dance companies over the past decade, I knew I wanted to do a series that would allow me the opportunity to photograph many, varied styles of dance and yet do so in a cohesive manner. With this in mind, I asked dancer Lisa LaMarre, who I work with often, into the studio. We experimented with different backgrounds and props until we found something we liked: a gray background generic enough not to take away from the dancers but also portable for those images where it was easier for me to travel to the dancers’ studio. We played with different props but the box seemed to offer the most opportunities for the dancers. They could pose on it, in it, next to it, hold it in front of them or even throw it down.
