Erik Saulitis, a photographer based in Minnesota, shirks classic dancer photography for a style that is much more artistic and captivating. Although he focuses as much on movement as other photographers do, he incorporates other elements that bring a different dimension to his dancer photography portfolio. From lightweight sheer fabrics to splashes of water and even a colorful small umbrella, the movement of each performer is accentuated through these fluid props.
Shot in studio against a white backdrop, the dancer photography ends up being gorgeous images of silhouetted bodies that turns the models into sculptures, of sorts. What is evident in each image is how much passion and joy the dancers have for their chosen craft.
