Stranger Than Kindness

Willy Vanderperre captures Marie-Agnés Gillot


Willy Vanderperre is a Belgian photographer and filmmaker. Marie-Agnés Gillot is a French ballet dancer and choreographer. But their seemingly unrelated mediums and modes of expression feel closely linked by a shared knack for playing with stillness. Vanderperre makes photographs that pack motion and emotion into a motionless frame, while Gillot is renown for her ability to imbue movement with intensity and power. Together, the two artists collaborated on this unique project for NeueJournal – making still images that feel somehow stiller than most.
