SKATERS KALEIDOSCOPE I have always considered ice-skating to be the most graceful sport of the winter Olympics. I wanted this kaleidoscope to be very subtle, like the moves of a fine tuned skater. I decided that white on white would provide the feel I wanted to attain. I added the gloves, masks and head dressings to bring focus to the eyes of the girls, leaving everything else in varying degrees of white. Like most of the kaleidoscope productions it took almost six months to produce, shoot and assemble. One of the biggest surprises was when one of the twelve-member skate team didn’t show on the day of the shoot. Fortunately a young girl was practicing her spins at the opposite end of the rink so we begged her and her mother to let her join the shoot. After all, my designs were based on twelve skaters and it would be impossible to change it to eleven after months of preparation. It turned out to be a blessing as she was used as the focal point multiple times, including the image titled “Birthing”.
