Photographer Glen Perotte has always liked bodies. ‘They’re my favourite topic, especially on dancers,’ he says. So a dancer was an obvious choice for photographic exhibition Illusion, which used the word as the brief. Perotte thought a lot about magic. ‘I wanted a cool, calm image. I wanted to dislodge the body in some way,’ he says. So he merged two shots, one of plate glass, which refracted and slightly distorted the body. Eleni Leoussi also photographed a dancer, placing her head on a headless statue in a London cemetery. Let your eyes deceive you for a week from 26 February at London’s Association of Photographers.
