Those photographs have been taken during the dance rehearsal back in Krakow, around 1999. I wanted to achieve some sort of painting mystery look. My focus was on dancers poses and their movement all together with dimmed light of theatrical spot lighting. I have combined the high sensitivity negative forced by about 4 stops in developing process to insanely increase the grain. I have also used a bit longer exposure to blur the movement. All these resulted in those photographs.

Work in progress...

Finished ... almost 1999
