Bendy Claire Gymnast Body Paint Shoot

October 2012

I’d been wanting to do a ‘movement’ shoot of body art for ages, and when Patrick fancied trying to photograph a paint with me, he suggested Claire, an expert ex-gymnast he had worked with before.

As he needed a large space to set up the photos in, we met in a he village hall he had hired. I was trying a new style of (non body-aimed) stencil so did a quick silver powder and mixer cosmetic base with pink and purple (her chosen colors) details.

Then sat back to let Claire do her thing!

It was interesting as her moves are all gymnastic and acrobatic but look exactly the same, and as graceful as, ballet.
