Flamenco on film 

Just in time for the Fall for Flamenco festival, Seeking Duende: Halifax Flamenco brings the heat to Viewpoint.

The passion of flamenco dance and music is displayed in every pose, gesture and facial expression in the collection Seeking Duende: Halifax Flamenco. On the heels of the upcoming Atlantic Flamenco festival, photographers from across Nova Scotia sought to find the duende (soul) of their subjects with varying success. Each photographer takes a different stance to documenting the art form. Joe Szostak's work provokes strength and power in Matador and Figure. Monika Wright's work is sensual and strikingly beautiful, particularly White on White while Cathy McKelvey shows the athleticism of the dance in Maria Osende. The subjects look vibrant in bright colours. Red, the stand-in symbol for passion, flows throughout the collection. While the broad dance steps and angled poses are eye-catching, look out for the small details.

To October 30, Viewpoint Gallery, 1272 Barrington Street, 420-0854
