Whim W’Him is fortunate to have Adam Bamberg, of Bamberg Fine Art Photography— along with wife Kim Bamberg and co-conspirator Molly Magee—as official recorders of the company’s most striking moments. Here are Adam’s thoughts on the favorite photos he chose for the blog:
In this photo of Chalnessa and Lucien in white, they both remind me of how dance can be so simple and yet complicated and elegant all in one moment. There is something about their precision that I can taste and I love it!
Lucien is in full effect in this photo from Three Seasons. He is flying through the air heading for the other dancers on the floor. It is mind blowing to see him cover the stage in just a couple of spinning leaps! Also, I love seeing the set designed by Casey Curran and the lighting created by Michael Mazzola.
In the last photo with Chalnessa and Andrew, I adore the softness that this woman, who most often makes my stomach hurt form laughing so much, portrays. She is angelic and appears ready to take flight, I cannot believe that I captured the light on her face and the delicate position of her arms all with a bit of Andrew behind.
Witnessing the creation of a dance and seeing that through to being performed on stage is a gift I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you Olivier!”
