Photographer Tony Nandi holds Transience exhibition at Linden Hall Studio for Deal festival of Music & Arts

An exhibition running alongside the Deal festival of Music & Arts features work by the photographer who has captured so many of the festival's finest moments.

Transience by Tony Nandi is running at Linden Hall studio from now until Saturday, July 13.

The Assocate of the The Royal Photographic Society has been photographing the performance arts for almost forty years, with a special interest in dance.

His ultimate intention is to invite and engage the viewer to partially recreate the physical, spatial and emotional experience of the performance, only through timing and composition.

This does not mean that dancers have to be suspended in the air or dashing about the stage, but can be to simply share the emotional experience of the performer, or anticipate their movement and intent.

In the first instance his images are taken for marketing, documentary or press purposes, where the opportunity for the above engagement may be limited. This is the first time as many as 60 photographs from his archive, from across the whole of his career, have come together to be exhibited in this form. Although concentrating on his dance images, the collection also includes some from both opera and theatre.
