Photographing Tarik Currimbhoy’s Kinetic Sculpture

I have had quite an adventure lately shooting my friend architect/sculptor Tarik Currimbhoy’s wonderful kinetic sculptures.  The works I have been photographing are tabletop size, sleek forms in stainless steel and bronze called Rockers.  The trick was to convey movement.  I shot some video, which will be on Tarik’s website http://www.tarikcurrimbhoy.com in due course.  The challenge was to photograph these elegant pieces, which are narrower at the top, in a way that would convey movement.  First I shot stills of the various versions:

But  Tarik needed photographs to use in print materials.  I experimented with various sorts of double and triple exposures, and I think I nailed it!

    Fantastic pictures, especially the one in movement. Tarik’s sculptures are beautiful. You can never tire looking at them because he has captured the secret of infusing motion in objects that don’t move.

    Thanks Dorothy. It was really a challenge to figure out how to do it without a room of lighting and camera equipment and assistants!
