FROM 'SYLVAN QUARTET', 1998
13.25 x 10.5 in — 33.7 x 26.7 cm
A professional photographer since 1984, Montreal-born Michael Slobodian’s work has been described as having a romantic, poetic quality.
For Slobodian, the ideal dance image articulates the explosive quality of the motion and the physical intensity of the dancer, but above all else, it documents with conviction the fierce commitment of these artists.
Equally at ease in the studio or on the set, he prefers the excitement of live performance in which compositional questions must be resolved quickly, under less-than-perfect conditions. Slobodian continues to work in the commercial photography field and pursue his love of the dance image. His work has been exhibited across Canada and abroad.
