"What distinguishes Loikas photographs from the crowd is technique. They are printed on aluminum sheets, making them to react with light and the surroundings in a different way than paper or other materials. The innovative use of materials may be derived from the architectural part of Loikas’ artistry." Excerpt from  Åbo Underrättelser newspaper - translated from Swedish to English - published January 23rd, 2014

This piece is a part of my aluminum print photography series of improvised modern dance using streets and other public spaces as stages. So far I have collaborated with dancers in New York (USA), Helsinki (FINLAND) & Shanghai (CHINA).

THE MOMENT:
I was laying as low as I could get on the wooden dance studio floor on Broadway. The dancers were rolling and tumbling towards me passing the Greek columns in the middle of the space.

I  photographed modern dance classes in action at Dance New Amsterdam 280 Broadway in March of 2013. What a great place and vibe in the heart of Manhattan! Sadly (see below) the place closed six montsh later. However, dance will continue in the space after a rental by Gibney Dance Company. 

BACKGROUND:
Dance New Amsterdam was founded in 1984. Dance New Amsterdam is a foremost institution for contemporary dance in New York City. Their home in Lower Manhattan was in the historic Sun Building on City Hall Park on 280 Broadway, where the renamed Dance New Amsterdam (now located in the former “New Amsterdam” section of Manhattan) became the first arts organization to move downtown after the September 11th tragedy. Due to financial arrangements this notice was posted on DNA website on September 2013:
“It is with heavy hearts that we approach the final days of our time at 280 Broadway. Our last day of classes will be this Sunday, October 13, 2013 and we hope to see you in class as we say goodbye to our home for the past eight years.”
