Behind The Scenes with Dennis Darzacq

The folks over at Lens Culture were able to get their hands on a documentary about Dennis Darzacq, the photographer who takes those photos of people about to splat into the ground in random locations. It’s an interesting look at the process of how he gets these images, as you find out that he hires professional dancers to perform these moves, capturing them at just the right moment. It’s also cool to hear the dancers talking about their “performance”, and how they felt they weren’t really doing a great job, but Dennis was still about to catch such amazing moments.

This kind of reminds me of that behind the scenes video with Todd Hido, which also gives you a look into his process as well.
