Zena Holloway has been one of my favorite photographers for a long time, I’d really like to have a print from this series one day!

In the series of photographs titled Bronson Caves, the caves served as a stage set yet again. Bischoff performed actions for the camera with massive sheets of colored paper. Since a long-exposure photograph was produced rather than a motion picture, the papers were recorded as voluminous, glowing colors. The materiality of the rainbowed forms, emerging from the mouth of the cave, dancing about the canyon, and bubbling up from the ground, are based solely in the photographic process, and can only be experienced when viewing the final photographic prints.
“If a visitor to the caves were to accidently stumble upon my performance they would only see a mass of crumbled colored paper draped awkwardly over a man moving/dancing to a camera positioned on a tripod. The goal of these performances was to create sculptural, photographic objects that interacted with the history and architecture of the caves.”-Brice Bischoff
Dancing in colored paper yields beautiful results.
