Elliott Kaufman
Street Dance 5 22 10 2 (Abstract Black and White Urban Grid of Bikers)

2010

About the Item

archival chromogenic digital print image size: 25 x 33 inches paper size: 30 x 40 inches Elliott Kaufman describes New York City as “a laboratory in constant movement." In his series “Street Dance,” Kaufman photographs repetitive actions of passersby – such as riding a bicycle or entering a subway station – from a single vantage point and arranges the images in a grid. Key to his series, Kaufman explains, was caluculating how changing light would affect the environment. “The bicycles had to be backlit at the very end of the day,” he says. “The subway sterps were calculated so that the light would cast perfect north/south shadwos.” He also shot a varying number of exposures at each scene to relay the “staccato rhythm” he sought – as many as 225. “The camera catches the commonality of movement,” he says, “until what endures is a patter of dance and motion.” A number of artists have led him in this direction, including the Bauhaus and the collaborative media which they pioneered, the 1977 film Powers Of Ten, which depicts the relative scale of the universe in factors of ten, Mike Figgis’ experimental film Timecode, as well as the multiple sequences by photographers Harry Callahan, Ray K. Metzger, Eadweard Muybridge and Jerry Ulesman. This particular print is highly contrasted images of figures on bikes wearing helmets and backpacks. Additional sizes available up on request.

    archival chromogenic digital print image size: 19 x 23 inches unframed Elliott Kaufman describes New York City as a laboratory in constant movement. In his series “Street Dance,” Kaufman photographs repetitive actions of passersby – such as riding a bicycle or entering a subway station – from a single vantage point and arranges the images in a grid. Key to his series, Kaufman explains, was calculating how changing light would affect the environment. “The bicycles had to be back-lit at the very end of the day,” he says. “The subway steps were calculated so that the light would cast perfect north/south shadows.” He also shot a varying number of exposures at each scene to relay the “staccato rhythm” he sought – as many as 225. “The camera catches the commonality of movement,” he says, “until what endures is a patter of dance and motion.” A number of artists have led him in this direction, including the Bauhaus and the collaborative media which they pioneered, the 1977 film Powers Of Ten, which depicts the relative scale of the universe in factors of ten, Mike Figgis...
