golden hip hop shade

These images are from the hip hop Theatre production ‘Voices in the Alleyway’, choreographed by Cindy Claes of Spread Expression last year and I selected images from this performance because Spread Expression are about to run a series of workshops including a hip hop theatre lab from which I’m expecting exciting results.

I’ve selected this series to show how small differences in light and shade can change the emotional content of an image. This is particularly challenging when, as in this case, a spot light exaggerates the brightness and luminosity, thereby changing the story that the image tells.
