My Digital Art - Part 3

This is one of my favourite photos from my Haworth trip. It's one of the few that I think may pass for an actual 1940s photograph as there is nothing in it to indicate it was taken in 2007. I removed the colour, added the film grain, and painted in the faded borders to create a more dated look.

Netherlands Dance Theater II

On Friday night, I went for a performance by the Netherlands Dance Theater II at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford, where I work. Netherlands Dance Theater II (NDT2) is a comtemporary dance company founded in 1978 and presently consists of sixteen dancers between the ages of 17 and 22. NDT2 was originally a training ground for young dancers before they move on to the main company, Netherlands Dance Theater I, but since its conception, it has developed into an internationally recognized company of its own. From the performance I saw, it’s easy to understand why. These publicity photos are from their first dance. There were 3 altogether, all incorporating simple props and costumes but choreographed in very artistic and original ways.
