Zoom Speaker: Lois Greenfield ‘Dance photography’, (Zoom from home)

Lois Greenfield has spent 40 years as a photographer investigating movement and its expressive potential. She says, ‘My inspiration has always been photography’s ability to stop time and reveal what the naked eye cannot see. What intrigues me is making images that confound and confuse the viewer, but that the viewer knows, or suspects, really happened.   …  In my photographs, time is stopped, a split second becomes an eternity, and an ephemeral moment is solid as sculpture.’

Although known as a dance photographer Lois says that she prefers to work outside the constraints of choreography and so she works with dancers on improvised, non-repeatable, often high-risk moments. She goes on to say, ‘I am dealing in the poetics of a visual language rather than in its literalness.  I want my images to defy rational explanation. There is no “solution” to the questions posed by my photographs- they are meant to frame contradictions, present the impossible. All my pictures are taken as a single image, in-camera photographs. I never recombine or rearrange the figures within my images. Their veracity as documents gives the photographs their mystery, and the surrealism of the imagery comes from the fact that our brains don’t register split seconds of movement.’
