Keiko Guest is an Asian/African American fine art photographer and a former professional dancer. She is most known for her portrayals of Atlanta's leading dancers and international gymnasts from all over the world during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.
Keiko’s signature style evolves from a passion for capturing the high energy, absolute essence, and exquisite form of dancers in their most critical stages of movement. A celebrated dance photographer, she choreographs for the camera and is able to direct her subjects with a supernatural eye for capturing the human form. Her newest achievement is “Shadowdance,” a dramatic black and white photography series featured by The Lowe Gallery in Atlanta during their 18th Anniversary Show scheduled to open on July 13, 2007.
For more than 25 years, top media outlets such as The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta Magazine and Creative Loafing have featured her photographs. Guest’s photography has graced countless programs and playbills as well as several dance publications and newsletters, most notably Dance Magazine.
Her work is in high demand in the performing arts community, and is a preferred photographer for The Actors Guide to the Southeast, The Alliance Theatre, the Atlanta Workshop Players and many Georgia dance companies, high schools and universities. Her credits include having served as company photographer for the Atlanta Ballet and the Atlanta Opera. Keiko was chosen by the “Make a Wish Foundation” to capture their most recent Wish Child, who happened to be a dancer.
