THE FATHER OF POP DANCE | Tiane Doan na Champassak

Tiane Doan na Champassak found a photo album among other objects that belonged to his father. He didn’t know about the existence of the album nor about the purpose of this photoshoot or why his father posed in a studio in Los Angeles in 1967. The album was carefully edited, showing the “Father of Pop Dance” dancing in different outfits to an equally unknown music.

The book reproduces the found album composed of analog prints that over time, and due to the storage conditions, caused the pages to stick together in some areas and teared up when opened years later. Those tears are symmetrical on each double page spread and add movement to the dancing scenes.

You can purchase the book here.
