The Moving Cities photography project is an initiative to present world cultures through dance. Jevan Chowdhury, founding member of London-based creative studio Wind & Foster, is the man behind the series, which has earned significant accolade around the globe.
In a bid to present a completely new view of Salford, Chowdhury took to the Manchester’s streets with a company of young dancers to create a series of photographs that celebrates the strength of youth dance in this country.
The shoot took place ahead of 450 young dancers, from around the country, heading to Salford in July for U.Dance, the nation’s youth dance festival, which this year takes place at The Lowry.
Jevan Chowdhury said: “Moving Cities has visited cities and worked with dancers from around the world – Paris, Brussels, Melbourne to name a few, what made Salford so special was its youth and talent – some of the best work from that age group I’ve ever seen.”
Founded in 2014, Moving Cities, captures international dancers through photography and film in the context and movement of the city. Working with the natural hustle and bustle in cities around the world, the project provides new and different perspectives of city spaces through exploring the universal language of dance.
