SOAR – Anatomy in Motion

SOAR - 11

SOAR – Anatomy in Motion is a project of excellence, a body of work featuring 43 photographic prints culminating a 5-year project by physician & professional photographer Charles Paul Azzopardi.

This project brings together a definitive array of Azzopardi’s pioneering work and encompasses incomparable images of the precision and power of the human body & anatomy. For this installation, the images are collected into series that together transcend any one fixed single image. Each gallery becomes a resonant field of forms and figures, phrases and rhymes, themes and configurations, forming shifting sculptures of concept and design. This presentation of Azzopardi’s work brings a fresh perspective from a doctor’s trained eye in anatomy spying on dance & photography to chisel & slice a moment of time; human anatomy in motion is one of the most elusive yet intriguing of photographic subjects. Capturing the graceful forms of dancers in flight by chiselling a moment of time into an impactful sculpture, Charles’ photographs reveal what the human eye cannot see.
