Earlier in 2014, I was asked by my friend David to photograph Lindy while we were in Tokyo. I had one day to put my idea for the photo together and was inspired by the first video that David showed me of Lindy dancing under a streetlight in the middle of the night. Because Lindy is a dancer, I wanted the photo to be about stillness and the chaos at the same time.
Perfect exposure, Trey! To get the depth of field (aperture narrowed) and shutter speed (push the ISO) to freeze her, must have been a tricky issue to tackle! Timing was perfect. I haven't been to the Ginza for over a decade. It's always amazing. I'm trying to remember how we did this stuff in the days of film and grainy 1600 film. Oh, now I remember... we didn't. Not like this, anyway.
