Daniel Dancer and his sky photography
American environmental artist, activist, educator and photographer Daniel Dancer creates unbelievably beautiful paintings. Meanwhile, aerially documenting the human impacts upon the natural world, using up to 4000 people for his works. Each one of them knows where to stand on their knees and hands with their backs exposed so that the colored t-shirts can show best. Dancer only takes one shot when he is up in the air, because first he wants it to be spontaneous, and second rehearsals doesn’t make any sense to him.
“We all long for tribe, for belonging and wholeness. This longing is at the heart of the human experience. It is this very longing that creates and recreates the universe every single day. This need to be complete, to be whole, lives in all things and is the essence I think in the magic of the giant collaborative, living paintings for the sky. As each sky art image nears completion there comes a moment when it becomes a metaphor for how change happens, for how wholeness manifests. For creation itself”. Daniel Dancer
