Weiferd Watts - A Dancer's Form

Tribute to a Beloved Photographer
Event detail
 

portrait of Weiferd Watss 9/26/1956-10/10/2010

For over twenty-five years photographer Weiferd Watts captured an incredible array of dancers and athletes from around the US and abroad. He became a well-known fixture in the Bay Area dance community and counted among his subjects dancers from America’s top companies. Removed from the traditional setting of the stage, the intimate portraits he created required the eye of a choreographer. Without any dance training, he would contort his body in an attempt to demonstrate his visions for movement, which were then interpreted by his subjects, yielding extraordinary results. His vast body of work represents several generations of artists captured in magical, elusive moments created through  collaborative experiments and pure serendipity.

Weiferd’s work captured the fleeting presence of a generation of dancers from our community and documented a unique  collaborative process between two disciplines.  Dance and photography were his passions and both fields will mourn his early loss for years to come. Let us enjoy what he left behind.

Weiferd Watts passed away in 2010.  The library has been collaborating with the local dance community to exhibit a small collection of the photographs that tied Weiferd and the dancers together.
