3. “To be a dancer is to work your body to the breaking point. In my project, the infrared technique that reveals the blemishes that lie under the dancer’s abused skin, like scars, stretch marks, sun damage, etc.”
9. “Like a form of voyeurism, this photographic process strips away the dancer’s outer shell, exposing hidden flaws. In Inframen, the surface of the skin becomes a metaphor for the dancer’s interiority.”
15. “I deeply identify with this perception and it closely relates to how I experience my own masculinity. Our shared idea about gender roles is a generative force in the dialog between us and is threaded throughout the work.”
21. “In my last project, Tension, I was interested in movement. For Inframen, I wanted to do something more personal for the dancers. This technology allowed me to look under their skin and that felt very personal to all involved.”
23. “The way that I work with models is not by talking a lot. I trust in intimacy. The process is technical, quiet and gentle. We photographed in weird places. Most of these are not studio shots. I was surprised it worked at all.”
