Schatz is man who likes redheads. He is also an uncompromising artist who evidently likes a challenge and makes great demands on himself and his subjects. When he offered the stars of the San Francisco Ballet a chance to defy gravity in the weightless world of water, they doffed their leotards and took the plunge. The results are magical. No adjectives or superlatives can do justice to these experimental photographs; what Schatz does with the human form, a few bits of fabric, a Nikonos and a body of water will captivate the viewer.
Shooting underwater is an artform, and so is dance photography. Howard Schatz is a master of both. In Water/Dance, he presents classical dancers flying unencumbered by the effects of gravity. In a remarkable combination of light, color and design, these images celebrate the power of movement, the grace of design, and the expressiveness of dance. Over 100 full-color illustrations.
