Charles Atlas has been a pioneering figure in film and video for over four decades. Atlas has consistently extended the limits of his medium, forging new territory in a range of genres, stylistic approaches, and techniques. Throughout his production, Atlas has fostered important collaborative relationships, working closely with artists and performers such as Leigh Bowery, Michael Clark, Douglas Dunn, Marina Abramovic, Yvonne Rainer, Mika Tajima/New Humans, Antony and the Johnsons, and most notably Merce Cunningham, for whom he served as in-house videographer for a decade from the early 1970s through 1983; their close working relationship continued until Cunningham’s death in 2009.
