Luis Pons

My name Luis Pons. I am often asked why I photograph dance. I came to photography because I was going through depression and it was something that helped me cope. That's how it began, a tool to help me survive. I could frame a moment in time and that gave me back a sense of control. I could control that frozen moment in time. It gave me back my center.
Now I would say the vision is the pursuit of beauty, symmetry, color and contrasts. But, most importantly to capture that fleeting moment when in the human experience, a center holds long enough to give birth to what could be said, is eternal. That 1/500th of a second where all the energies in the human heart ,body and spirit fuse together as one beautiful musical note. That's why I photograph dance. To remind me of the potential in all of us to be beautiful , serene and at peace. That moment will always be short lived, but I have learned through many painful experiences to live a lifetime in a quiet moment. I have many such moments and I am very happy about that...
