Cleveland’s Verb Ballet

Cleveland's Verb Ballet dancers perform in a dress rehearsal.

I’ve posted this photo of Cleveland’s Verb Ballet previously on Facebook and have now printed it as a large giclee canvas wrap and it looks spectacular!  A copy of this photo was also donated and raffled off to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life last year.  It’s been a very popular fine art print.

During this same shooting session, I set my camera for multiple exposures and captured a number of interesting images.  In these images you can make out anywhere from 4-6 images on individual dancers taken during several seconds of movement.  One of them is posted below.  The more I look at it, the more I see in it.  The shapes and forms are fascinating.

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
