"Kinesthesis" Gallery Exhibit - Brooklyn, NY - May 2008
" The art of dance holds a very different experience for the audience than it does for the dancer. The audience's experience is one of visual pleasure from a safe distance. Respectively, traditional dance photography has mirrored this. The experience of the actual dance though, is not one of visual pleasure at all, but one of energy, sweat, emotion, and passion. Anne Hugus' photographs capture this raw experience of the dancer: hair flying, bodies thrown into the air, energy bursting from the form. As a dancer herself, Anne has an intuitive sense of when the prime moments will happen, and is not afraid of getting into the dance and up close and personal with her subjects."
