Butoh is a movement art form sometimes included with dance art forms. The primary signifier of Butoh is the expression of the agony of existence.
I first encountered Butoh decades ago collaborating with a dance troupe inspired by Butoh. The danced nude or very nearly nude, a practice seen sporadically throughout Butoh exhibitions.
This session is limited to 5 photographers, each provided with flash units DEDICATED to individual use. I will provide assistance/coaching/instruction in lighting, camera work, composition, and directing models.
The model will be Kammeron, a wonderful performer who has visited my studio as model and photographer many times. Kammeron's slender build and delicate bustline are perfectly suited to this presentation. See samples here: http://www.modelmayhem.com/477152
Kammeron is NOT trained in Butoh but has been studying it since I first suggested this session to her. Do not expect Butoh-correct discipline, but do expect a wonderful exercise in art nude with truly unusual shapes, angles, and attitudes.
We will work with some drapes, and undraped, all with body powder.
Fee is $100 per photographer.
