Dancer, 2015 Limited Edition Baryta Museo Silver Rag print
Wakaba Shudo is a young, emerging dancer and international student from Japan. This photograph titled ‘Emerging Dancer’ or tobu means to fly’ represents in one sense, the freedom of flight and of unrestrained movement. In another it highlights the striving, searching and daring which comes with the raw talent of youth.
Within Wakaba’s dance practice she is visibly attempting to harness her own individualism, freedom of expression and also a willingness to express herself beyond the boundaries of her own culture.
