Dancers in still life

From Standing Room Only, 1:34 pm on 11 October 2015

The pride, practise and the pain that goes into creating dance is captured in black and white still images by John McDermott in his new book Process. It's a record of the first few years of the New Zealand Dance Company, shot in the studio at rehearsals and backstage at venues. John says alongside the images of graceful and muscular young bodies, we see the pain that goes into being a professional dancer and what goes into producing a full length dance work.
