Dance Prints – Human Splicing Through Space by Jesus Chapa-Malacara
Jesus Chapa-Malacara is a photographer and previously a dancer well studied in the art of ballet. A few years ago, while out of the dancing world and working as a portraitist, Jesus came across the idea of not only showing stills of dancers but showing the movements between the stills. He began his work with other ballet dancers but has since grown to include break dancers and house dancers. He is very proud to explain that his images are not edited, but are the product of old-school photography techniques and creative lighting. His project is still looking for support and more dancers as he wishes to increase the size of this portfolio and the audience for it.
