Shooting with Light archiveIn 1934 a young German refugee flees to Paris and discovers the genius of photography. She reinvents herself as Gerda Taro, becoming one of the pioneering women to photograph the front line. In this startling and visually rich production Idle Motion expose one of the most remarkable untold stories of our age. Today we live in a world where our lives can feel like they are defined by our collective Kodak moments. With the compulsion to capture it all we are flooded by a myriad of images. And yet within the 2.5 billion photographs taken every day, there will only be a precious few that we will continue to hold on to. World Premiere. Described by The Guardian's Lyn Gardner as 'a brilliant emerging company', Idle Motion use innovative staging, physicality and multimedia to interweave the dramatic stories of photographs undeveloped, scattered and unearthed: This is a story about capturing moments, freezing shadows and the photographs that outlive our memories.
