Lancaster Moves

Showcasing a series of photographs featuring dancers & movers in everyday locations around Lancaster City doing what they do best, each portraying their own unique style or story in whatever environment they find themselves in.

In the gathering of these images, the artist was struck by how the dancers interacted with their surroundings to create and enhance their movements, whether they were balancing on a railing, leaping from a staircase or spinning through an alleyway. Their movement gave new life and perspective to spaces we pass by every day.
