NYC Dance Project

Ken Browar and Deborah Ory in collaboration with the New York City Dance Project captured the most beautiful ballet/dance photographs, filled with beautiful lighting, colour, and delicate tones to compliment the artistic movements created by the dancers.

These images featuring Michele Wiles, the Artistic Director of BalletNext, New York City, taken by Ory and Browar.

The subjective content captured within the composition is similar to how I plan to experiment, along with the symbolism of ballet, that being the strength of the dancer, yet also filled with grace and beauty, and also focusing on the dress and gestures of the model in relation to a particular notion I want to capture.

To keep up to date with the New York City Dance Project go follow their blog Here  and their press info Here

Ory and Browar also have a book coming out October 25, to go find it on Amazon follow the link.

Another artist who uses motion and gesture, coupled with lighting and colour to capture the feminine, flair and strength of ballet is Vadim Klein.

To see another stunning work of Klein’s please follow the link.

(There are a few dodgy images on his site, but there are also many beautiful dancing photographs such as the examples I am interested in above).
