Ballerina Project


Recently, I came across an interesting photograph of a ballerina in the metro station:

I liked it a lot so I checked if there is more photos like that – and that’s how I found the Ballerina Project’s website (! 
In brief, the project is a series of over 800 photographs by Dane Shitagi which has been going on for 12 years now. Shitagi takes pictures of ballerinas who dance for world’s greatest companies such as American Ballet Theater, Boston Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet and New York City Ballet. The critics are delighted and admit that the project is much more than a typical dance photography. Well, I couldn’t agree more –  the photos I found are just stunning. Unfortunately, not all of them are published on the Internet – to see most of them, you have to subscribe to the website and pay about 10 dollars.
