Romanian photographer Tiberiu-Mihail Cimpoeru set-up a quick photoshoot – Dansdansans – with a couple of dancers, and the result is gorgeous. The multiple exposured photo-series featuring local dancers Irina Strungareanu and Relu Dobrin is a part of SSP (Serpentine Series Project), the studio who recently released VERLOREN, a hypnotic fashion short-film about an abstract fight between androgynous angels.
Simply said, in the series the depth of the human bonding seems to turn individuals into halves of the same whole, as Plato beautifully explained the origins of lovers in “The Symposium”: “According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves”.
The photos are remarkable in their simplicity, and they reveal the inner strenght and emotions of the dancers while capturing their unexpected dynamics, and give the best out of the photographer, all at the same time.
