We have several of Minnesota-based artist Erik Saulitis’ works in our two fitness centers at The Current Iowa. These beautiful photos offer a new look at the human body, and serve as inspiring portraits for our gym-goers. Erik has been involved with both visual and performance art for years, and has found a way to perfectly blend the two forms. The images he captures are the result of collaborations between himself, choreographers, and dancers. Erik shoots in a studio where he has ultimate control of the lighting; there is no photoshop used in these images. This artistic control is exercised throughout his process, from initial conception to the framing of the final print.

Fun Fact: The human body, as well as many other living organisms, glows in the dark! Our bodies are constantly emitting biophotons that cause our bodies to illuminate. However, the human eye is too weak to see this aura; the light we emit is about 1/1000 times weaker than the human eye can process.
