“Dancing is creating a sculpture that is visible only for a moment.”
― Erol Ozan
I am a fan of many art discipline. It has always been in me – my fascination with the creative world; be it in design, photography, dance, visual arts, etc. My fascination would be bring me to countless hours of in depth research – searching for information and history of the art form. This “habit” of mine would lead to this post and my latest photography project with ballerina Sanna Kaappola.
It all began in early 2013 when I visited this location for a casual stroll, which in turn, lead to me to create my long exposure “Life of Pier” series in 2014. Back then, I realised the potential of adding a human element to my long exposure photography. The question though was who would make a great subject. It took another two years for the idea to become reality.
As a professional ballerina, Sanna has graced some of the finest stages in the world. It was by chance that I stumbled upon her Facebook and found that she was currently based in Singapore. I jumped at the opportunity by sharing with her my concept and was delighted when she said she was interested in working with me. This is an introduction to ballerina Sanna Kaapola and her dedication to her art. My series titled “Frozen Grace” will be my next post. Keep you posted.
