Inspiration: The Work of Pina Bausch

I’ve moved so far away from photography over the past year that these days I almost never pick up a camera anymore. I have become entirely focused on book and paper based work and have lost my groove for thinking photographically. But I’ve been wanting to get back to taking photos and in order to do this I need to seek out inspiration and give myself a project to work on.

Last night we went to see the film, Pina, which is about the life and work of German choreographer Pina Bausch. It’s a beautiful film to watch, very intense in some ways, with interesting staging and eye-catching imagery. Watch the trailer below to get an idea of what I mean.

I found the film very inspiring, and I think it was just the thing to get me thinking again about shooting creative portraits.
