Robert Stivers

Robert Stivers came to photography through the world of dance, which he performed professionally until he suffered a serious back injury. Restricted by the types of movements he could do, Stivers decided to choreograph his own pieces, allowing him to explore how his spine moved. Around the same time, he started using a camera to document his performances, often creating movements specifically for the camera. Soon after, Stivers starting filming his dances with a Super-8 camera, transferring the film to video, then photographing the monitor. The result of this elaborate process is a series of images where figures float in total darkness and limbs appear to exist without a body attached. These are soft, unfocused images about memory, birth, longevity, eroticism and the threads that link all people together. "The dance he proposes and encourages throughout his work is not merely a dance of the eye - not uncommon when engaging in photographs - but an imaginary dance of the whole body".
