Eric Paré is a Canadian visual artist, creator of various projects that combine and discuss light, space, time and the existence of the human body.
In his series LightSpin, the artist captures majestic long exposure images of dancers and athletes posing in front of beautiful landscapes. “LightSpin is an experimental photography art project that finds its source in a unique light painting technique. Performers are improvising contemporary dance movements at the center of a ring on which 24 cameras are mounted. Their brief dances are carried out in complete darkness, light being aimed at the subjects as to reveal their shapes and movements, thus capturing their passage in a defined space,” he explains his website.
