Parachute

2018

 

Movement & Self-Portraiture  Kathryn Chapman

Movement Coach   Maria Koripas

 

On location in Northamptonshire

 

Maria worked with creative photographer Kathryn Chapman on a section of her self-portraiture project exploring aspects of mental health.

The shoot shows Kathryn expressing her strength and power using authentic emotions and movement.  The space along with the strong winds and beautiful sunshine, helped her form large shapes with the parachute skirt and allowed her to align with her surroundings and connect with her feelings in the moment.  

 

Movement was integral to this shoot as it granted Kathryn a deeper connection between mind and body, resulting in broader expression, which then became a very moving and immersive experience for her.
