Travis Magee is a New York based photographer and dancer. Magee stated in an interview with Sky Nova, that his two careers inform each other because “being able to work with dancers and knowing how they work, and being able to talk to them” helps him to articulate and direct his desired photo compositions.
Magee’s stirring photographs utilize the athleticism of professional dancers, setting their extravagant leaps, twists and bounds into everyday settings. This contrast allows the viewer to interpret an intricate emotional narrative from the dancers’ movements. When looking at the images it’s hard to believe that none of them were Photoshoped!
