Shira Klasmer


Shira Klasmer is a London based artist and professional photographer.

Her artworks emerge from a fascination in the transition of time. Working with photography, video and performance, she explores and questions our perception of movement, time and space in relation to how the camera captures and records these. The still photograph can become an image of a split second or a whole narrative phase of time.

She has been involved in collaborative art projects with artists Gabriel Klasmer, sound artists Tom Tlalim and Flock Dance integrating her interest in time with her unique photographic methods. She has exhibited artworks internationally to name some; Singapore International Festival, Singapore (2016), Celeste Prize, Italy (2015),  Israeli Museum, Israel (2012), Roundhouse, London (2011 & 2016), and Invideo 2010 Video Art festival, Italy. Her works are also in private collections.

In one recent project, she collaborated with Dance historian/choreographic team Millicent Hodson and Kenneth Archer to self-publish a visually enticing book on their re-construction of the lost ballet ‘The Rite of Spring’ from 1913. She documented the ballet in Warsaw performed by the Polish National Ballet and has designed the book and assisted in the final editing the volume. The book was published in 2013 and is currently available on Amazon.  Her photographic works have also been published in numerous online and printed books and magazines internationally.
