"I choose leaves and pieces of trees to represent the suspended time of a dance. The idea began twenty years ago, when I made about a thousand drawings of no more than three lines representing the basic movements of ballet (jumping, stretching, folding, lifting, turning, sliding, throwing or precipitating). I decide to take this idea forward with photographs, I discover that these pieces left on the ground by the trees appeal to us to identify with them. Each of the pieces I photographed I turned them over, and tried them out to see their expressive intensity. Each of the chosen pieces contains the expression of movement, and the shape of the leaves, color and state have a theatrical costume that contributes to the narrative plasticity and poetic expressiveness of them."
