Clara Balzary is a Los Angeles-based photographer and filmmaker whose first book is the newly released Big Fresh Air from London’s Pinch Publishing. “The photographs in Big Fresh Air were taken over the course of four days, spanning from the late spring to the late summer of 2021. All pictures are the result of a collaboration with Ruby Kernkamp and Emily Leona Rose. Kernkamp and Rose used contact improvisation techniques to create distinct movement dialogues between participants and the natural landscape, stemming from an interest in what happens when bodies give and receive weight and touch. Each day took place in the public parks in La Cañada / Flintridge, a city in the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains in Los Angeles County, during a time when groups were encouraged to gather exclusively in outdoor spaces.”
