    The first three really take my breath away. The way the light falls on the image and results in an ambiguous and unclear image rather than what we expect light to do creates a nice tension for me.

    I’m loving this polaroid-instant film-grainy snapshot look lately. reminds me of going through my dad’s old photos from the seventies/eighties as a kid. like a bunch of frozen moments in time–really cool.

    I love the first one but I put money on it that she just mis-metered her flash. Been there done that many times.

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
