Jubal Battisti
Berlin, Germany-based photographer and dancer.

 

Pittsburgh born, New York grown, and Europe refined. He combines his extensive movement experience as a dancer with photographic concepts and tools, creating imagery that explores the gulf between body and spirit. A graduate of The Juilliard School and the New York Institute of Photography, his photographic work has appeared in Metro NY, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and the Silver Eye Center of Photography. His images have also been displayed in Dance Magazine, Tanz, and Playbill, as well as exhibited at the Peridance Capezio Center in NYC and GöteborgsOperan in Sweden.

Jubal is constantly looking for ways to explore the realm of imagery through collaboration with artists and producers across the globe, utilizing his intuitive kinesthetic timing and dance-honed aesthetics.

His long-term collaboration with NYC-based choreographer Sidra Bell culminated in the 2011 book “Persona.” While working in Sweden, he photographed for ilDance and further developed his P^4: Post-Performance Portrait Project. Since moving to Berlin in 2014, Jubal has created imagery with choreographers Josep Caballero García, Marquet Lee, and Roderick George.

He has assisted Berlin-based photographers Olaf Blecker, Joachim Baldauf, Luis Alberto Rodriguez, and Schall & Schnabel.

Recently he has collaborated with Copenhagen’s contemporary dance company CORPUS.
