Off camera at the Bennelong photoshoot

This candid photograph gives an insight into what goes on off-camera during a media photo shoot. The choreographer and dancers are trying to create the spirit of a work before the creative process has begun in the studio. As the artists examine the series of images just shot, they can examine how their bodies are sculpting the space and light and reflect on what's just been captured. This reflection will help them extend their physicality to generate strong images.
