Electrifying photo series shows dancers leaving behind light trails in long exposure shots

For Singapore-based photographer Tan Ngiap Heng, who has always been transfixed by dance and calls it a ‘lifelong obsession’, the exploration of the different dimensions of the dancing body has occupied his personal work for years.

In the ethereal Light Signature series, for instance, dancers with LED lights attached to their bodies leave behind light trails in long-exposure shots, embodying one-of-a-kind signatures or calligraphy that only they could have executed. It’s a fascinating meditation on life through dance. These works are part of Tan’s solo exhibition, Body of Work, which just started running this week at the ION Art Gallery.
