Simone Ghera Photography

The project “DANCER INSIDE” represents my personal work and contains images of dancers from different countries, companies and academies, taken over several years (from 2007) during rehearsals and classes, backstage, outdoor locations focused in architectural and historical contexts. I am an architect based in Rome Italy (born in 1959) involved in photography since my very early age, following my father on location shoots. Soon after I started to shoot myself during my frequent journeys around the world, developing photos in my little dark room in my basement. Since then, the way images magically appear on the white sheets it is something I find absolutely fascinating. Lately I came back to photography exploring the digital world andimproving my technical skills, concentrating my attention on the use of lighting, which I consider one of the most creative aspects of photography. Under this regard it has been very helpful a course taken in Rome at the Scuola Romana di Fotografia. In this occasion I developed this work focused on the world of dance. This subject has attracted me ever since. Now at last I decided to dedicate a web site to this theme to share my work with everyone interested in dance.
