“Follow not only the movement but breathe with the dancers” is Cody Choi’s approach to his dance photography. Cody’s photography journey started as he toured and danced around the world with Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake for 3 years. Capturing different places, theatres and fellow dancers whom he went on the road with filled his days.
As an experienced professional choreographer and dancer whose work has been performed in the Linsbury Theatre at the Royal Opera House, The Place in London and other major venues across Europe and Asia, Cody’s photography demonstrates his accumen in dance and photography by being able to immerse himself into intimate visual dialogues with the dancers. The relationship does not stop at the movements but extends to the dancer’s ability, state of mind and emotions. Cody is also an award photographer for The Place and teaches contemporary dance at Danceworks – danceworks.net/cody-
