UK-based photographer Bertil Nilsson‘s project “Intersections” is a blend of two photographic subjects: urban landscapes and dance.
Nilsson first sought out city spaces that have interesting architectural features. “There are lines, shapes, and textures to be uncovered with a camera,” he says.
Once these spaces were located, Nilsson thought about how he could “repurpose them” by introducing the movement of a human figure. He collaborates with circus artists and dancers, so he had plenty of models to work with.
His goal was to feature each dancer as a “living sculpture” of soft and fluid forms in a cold urban environment full of hard and sharp features.
You can find the rest of the photographs from this series over on Nilsson’s website.
