Synopsis: Acclaimed photographer Howard Schatz broke new ground in the 1990s with his books WATER DANCE and POOL LIGHT, two collections of luminous photographs of dancers, some clothed and some nude, all taken underwater. His underwater photography has been called uncanny, lithe and athletic, exquisitely real, and mysterious, and has been widely imitated in art and advertising. The dancers seem to transcend time and space to become floating, ethereal objects. Schatz's new underwater photographs are shot in a state-of-the-art, custom-built pool fitted with studio lights and covered with a giant dome to regulate temperature. The results are stunning. His unique images---at once lyrical, fantastic, and palpably real---express the beauty of inspired movement magically free of the restrictions of gravity.
About the Author: Howard Schatz lives in New York with his wife and business partner, Beverly Ornstein. His work has been exhibited in museums and photography galleries internationally and has been published in numerous magazines as well as in fifteen books of photography including the critically acclaimed ATHLETE, BOTANICA, and IN CHARACTER: ACTORS ACTING. Owen Edwards has written about photography for 30 years, for American Photographer, New York Times Magazine, New York, The Village Voice, Saturday Review, Vogue, Smithsonian, and many other publications.
