Photography is a way to remember things not the way they happened but the way they made you feel.

Roots Project

Roots Project

Dance is an universal language.
It transcends cultures, ages, knows no boundaries.
Dance is a human story, it can tell us who we are, where we come from, what are our traditions, rituals, connection to the sacred.
Dance is a way of expression, an identity.
Regardless of which language we speak, regardless of where we call home, we can all find a common ground through dance.
Through movements, we save words that perhaps others would not understand and instead establish a language that is familiar to everyone.
As a photographer, I tell stories.
Like dancers, I use no words and appeal to universal symbolism.
ROOTS is a project that has been living with me for a while and now is the perfect time to explore its essence and to make it happen.
Through a series of portraits of people dancing in direct interaction with the natural elements earth , air and water , I want to tell the story of humans.

Their connection to the visible and the invisible, what makes them unique and similar.

 

First series : Jan 2018, Utrecht, The Netherlands with urban Dutch dancer Roger van Kooij
