After leaving London in the autumn of 1991 I found myself to be a photographer without any purpose. These photographs were part of a series I took of dancers beginning approximately ten years before. The plan had been to document as many different forms of dance as possible from ballet classes in a Yorkshire town, to flamenco dancers at The Seven Dials Club, London and performers backstage at a West End show. This picture was taken on the roof of the Chisenhale Dance Space in London. As the sun was low in the sky I asked the dancers to rehearse outside so that I could capture the effects of their long shadows on the flat roof.
