a shooter’s simple conversation with dance, spurred by a desire to capture both movement and moment within a single frame.


a stage is a raised platform for theatrics. it is an empty space for life-reflection, a magnifier, an arena for expression, soul mirror, living limelight, left click. the shooter suffers is torn, by story light scene and subjectivity, creative tension, to aptly render it all within the same, much smaller frame, of time, matter & space, while seeking hopefully always less in vain, to stage the stage a bigger-better, still – grander place.
