Morgan Lugo lives and works in Los Angeles. He was raised in North Carolina and educated in rural New York, earning a degree in dance from SUNY Purchase. He began photographing as a way to document the experience of working in a traveling dance company. He’s captivated by the romanticism of fleeting moments and uses photography as a means to explore the subtle nuances of a situation, memorializing an otherwise forgotten nostalgia. Write up- My journey with L.A. Dance Project began in the summer of 2012. I started photographing the company in June of 2013. Since then, we have traveled around the world sharing what we do with audiences that are eager to experience the vision put forth by Benjamin Millipeid and the choreographers and artists whose work we represent. This group of traveling artists has danced on proscenium stages, raked stages, in a century old coliseum, a seedy train station, museums, jewelry stores, historic houses, film sets, the gardens of Versailles and on top of a pool in Bel Air. There is really nothing “normal” about what we do or the artists we work with. That being said, the photographs presented here serve as an entry point into the hidden workings of things. The transient moments before the seats have been filled and after the last curtain have been called. The in-between times when the sweat begins to dry and utter exhaustion unveils the human behind the dancer. It is not that I am drawn more to moments of calm or mundane abstraction, but more so that this is how I myself experience the company. This is what I see.
