DJ’ing at its highest level is about capturing a moment. “The audience feels anything from nostalgia, to a heightened sense of excitement, to being put into a sonic trance,” says DJ Rahsaan “Fly Guy” Alexander. “I equate photography to DJ’ing in that sense. My style of shooting is about capturing a moment that will never be duplicated. When I see a certain kind of energy on the dancefloor, something like a voice in my head tells me where I should go next with the music. It’s a response to what I’m observing in front of me.” With the images he captures, it’s a similar process — he observes the environment around him, and then a “voice” tells him to take the photo.
