Before becoming a professional photographer, Vreni Arbes used to work as a sports teacher. No wonder she has an eye for finding the secret moments of movement and can react in a hundredth of a second.

But why dance? Vreni not only loves to see dance, she dances herself and she takes classes regularily. That's why when taking pictures in a class she quickly gets familiar with the group, the dancers are feeling comfortable with her, and all of a sudden, she is a part of them.

That's the idea of the concept of her work at Iwanson. A photographer who instead of disturbing and attracting vanity becomes part of the group, a "fly on the wall" who follows the school routine  as a participating observer in order to explore the energy and the magic of the studio.

All photos on are taken by Vreni Arbes and more of them you can see on
