- Distorted: Teens Photoshop Their Own Pictures Until They're Social Media Perfect
- Photographer's Assignment to Capture a Bottle-Fed Baby Manatee is Too Cute
Rob Woodcox is obsessed with the human form. His photography is an example of what artistically-minded photographers can do with all of the newest technological advances we now have.
And, of course, what you can do when you have a slew of ballet dancers available at your beck and call.
Many of his composite shots are more intricate than Renaissance paintings, and many of them follow the same artistic compositions like the above photo which follows the Fibonacci sequence.
"What intrigues me about movement in dance is its correlation to my experience as a human being," Woodcox said. "Life is always moving and changing and dance quite literally replicates that using physical form."
Woodcox bounces around from city to city, seemingly searching out the hottest places to spark his creativity.
His Instagram, RobWoodcoxPhoto, says he is currently in Seattle, but he's worked in Los Angeles, New York City, and Mexico City over the past few years.
However, Woodcox doesn't only find his inspiration from physical places, but dreams.
He immediately writes his ideas down before searching out local dance companies to help him recreate it.
Woodcox is constantly worried about the overuse of Photoshop because he wants the final product to seem seamless, something he finds is easier to create with a digital camera.
Woodcox's photography is focused on the interconnectivy of the human race and the environment, and many photos exhibit this juxtaposition through gravity-defying shots.

Others are focused purely on cityscapes and the revocation of gender norms.
This is the composition that started it all.
"One could winter day I was feeling trapped in my living room, my "box," Woodcox said.
"I thought "how many people just sit in their boxes all year round, never daring to venture out into the world around them? How would the world change if we all overcame our fears and contributed positively with all that we are?"
The photo took the help of 30 people.
Even though Woodcox attempts to be as inclusive as possible with the models he chooses, some on his Instagram criticize him for only using extremely slim and fit dancers.
Nearly all of his prints are available off his website from $85.00, a price tag that exemplifies his dedication to inclusivity, be it financial, racial or gender.
