Vadim Stein

Vadim Stein is a photographer, artist and sculpture promeninetly known for photographing ballerinas in motion. He was very important to the research looking into capturing the qualities of motion of an object in motion – in this case fabric. His images convey the sense of motion by not only capturing these qualities in a still frame but also through the use of color and contortion of the body. This composition of the body creates a tension in the mind of the viewer but also to the edges of the frame. Particularly the images in which the body is nested within a spandex material and contorted is very powerful because of the ability to distract from the obviousness of it being a human body but rather looking at it more as an object.
