Moves of Interplay: Jesse Scales


9 May 2014

Each week we take you behind the scenes and through the moves of Interplay.


Jesse Scales: ‘During this photo shoot, I was playing around with some movement I had worked with Rafael to create for 2 In D Minor. The position was inspired by the sentence, “Having an argument with someone you love”. I was attempting to stretch my arm as far as I could behind my body to replicate the lengths one can go to to express what they mean, while keeping the determination in my finger and my eyes. Peter Greig the photographer decided to angle the position towards the camera in order to accentuate my focus. A very involved and exciting process.’
