photoblog image Ziya Azazi

Ziya Azazi

 

An acclaimed and innovative Turkish artist, Ziya Azazi, appeared at the On The Waterfront event at Liverpool's Pier Head last Saturday evening, presenting his 20 plus minute dance display Dervish In Progress, a variation on traditional Sufi dances. Very energetic, dark and low light and another photographic challenge.

Lovely powerful images that capture the energy of it all Les - brilliant!
Les Auld: Thanks Chris smile
Three good shots Les but the third is the one that is exceptionally good.
Les Auld: I might use that one in a portrait competition Brian, thanks for the comment.
Wow, you managed rather well with so little light, it certainly depicts the expression of the man.
Les Auld: All down to burst mode Marion, thanks for the comment.
I bet this was a lovely show to see Les...and you coped well with the lighting. Nice pictures.
Les Auld: It was rather different from what we usually get Ron, thanks for the comment.

Comparing beginning and end pictures, he seems like some kind of stripper tongue
