Photography in Action : Performing Arts

August 31st, 2011

With so much of photography being focused on still life imagery, and using said imagery to evoke emotion, we wanted to shift gears. Turning our focus instead on some of the awesome captures of photography in action. Those perfect pics that freeze a moment, stealing it from its momentum and forward drive, while still carrying so much of that action and energy with it. Welcome to Photography in Action: Performing Arts.

Below is a showcase of some very inspiring photographs by some talented artists who trained their eye on the performing arts to steal moments from. So much life bursting forth from each one that it is hard to not feel their push as you browse through them. Take a look and get inspired.
