Light in Winter - Street Theatre Portrait #4 by 


On Saturday, 22 June, in Federation Square, Melbourne, the “Light in Winter” Festival featured several street performances. The individual events were badly publicized and still there seems to be no internet information about the writers and performers.
 
This is just one of the actors who brought a cold night on the stones to life. I wish I could give you the credits, but I can’t find anything about these wonderful performers.

    Exceptionally powerful capture. Bet you said "wow’ when you saw this on screen :)

  • Thanks Maree :-) I think I was saying “wow” all night long. They were a photographer’s gift, honestly. But this one… yes… it just crackled. I have other actors doing something similar. I’ll post them eventually… I have well over 100 shots that I love. I wish I knew who this troop is, they were fantastic.

    Wow! such wonderful capture Bernard it has a spiritual feel to it, very moving indeed!
    A truely special series here !!

  • Thank you Karen. I struck gold last Saturday night. I was about to leave Fed Square when I noticed a small crowd gathering, which quickly grew so I plonked myself down on the ground in the front row and waited. What followed was a photographer’s dream – two plays, heaps of really good actors with fierce passion on their faces. I froze yo death, but I couldn’t move. It will take me ages to process the 100+ images I think are OK. This is just the first 6.

    FABULOUS!!! Electricity in the pose…and peace, too. What a wonderful balance!!!

  • Everything about it was electric Robin, it was magic and I was so close. Low light, expressive people, street scenes – all my favourite things. Lots more to come and maybe a video/slideshow. Thank you ma’am ;-)

    Bravo! One can feel the energy and of course your lighting is perfect for each. I chose this (#4) : the arm movement and the look on her face must be the reaction of a believer at The Second Coming!

  • Thank you Margot, this one really is my fav too. A few of the actors took up this posture and it was very moving. They all immersed themselves in the moment and gave all to their expressions. Vulnerability and abandonment was the ambiance and I hope I captured it.

    A great collection but this one really stands out. Excellent capture.

  • Thanks Ivan. This one certainly has been popular – emotion always charges a photo.

    Superb Rhoufi !!!
    Cette image a une puissance quasi religieuse !!

  • Merci Pascale :-)
    Oui, la ferveur avec laquelle les acteurs jouent leur rôle était presque religieuse. J’ai un peu plus pour poster qui montrent une ambiance similaire.
    Je vais tu envoyer un courriel au sujet de votre livre :-)

    Outstanding shot! Love this!

  • This seems to be most people’s favourite – mine too :-)
    I was very lucky to get this – you can see the other actors moving across the field of view and beginning to close her out.
