This photo is from a series in black and white and accompanies the
dialoque by Paul Valery of the same title. Greek philosophers discuss the
aspects of the beauty , perfection and strength of the body and the soul.
As the dancer proceeds , the soul takes flight over the body and is
victorious. I have tried to portray this progression by photographing the
movement in a stage where the body form becomes less tangable and the
feeling of the soul in dance becomes pronounced
