Coney Photo Dance Video

Stefan Falke, a New York based German photographer - has posted an interesting 'photo dance video' on his blog: Stefan Falke's Eye. The video was out together by its subject, the Trinidadian dancer and choreographer Makeda Thomas, using photographs taken by Falke at Coney Island last summer. The video also features music by Raw Artistic Soul featuring Wunmi.

The video is quite interesting, particularly in the way in which still photography is used to capture movement. It's also great to see a photographer using Coney Island in his work in such an innovative way, considering how many photographers tend to take the same few stock Coney shots.
