Beautiful paintings of the drunkards and typists of the Russian ballet

Beautiful paintings of the drunkards and typists of the Russian ballet | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

We’re no ballet aficionados, but we wouldn’t usually associate drunkards, typists and factory workers with the grace and poise of the discipline. However, as these beautiful gouache painting by Tatiana Bruni show, there’s much more to ballet than tutus and swan lake, with her angular figures, bold colours and sometimes grotesquely postured characters. The paintings show costume designs for Dmitri Shostakovich’s 1931 ballet The Bolt, and are going on show at London’s Gallery for Russian Arts and Design alongside a series of period photographs.

photographer Dane Shitagi's project shows ballet dancers anywhere but on stage

photographer Dane Shitagi's project shows ballet dancers anywhere but on stage | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

For 12 years, photographer Dane Shitagi has been photographing ballerinas in unusual environments such as a waterfall in Hawaii, a Manhattan fire escape or a Toronto streetcar.

He has now amassed more than 1,000 images of strong and graceful ballet dancers for The Ballerina Project posing anywhere but onstage.

Unencumbered by roles to perform, make-up or costumes, the dancers pose with loose flowing hair and simple leotards or dresses, showcasing their effortless poise even as gritty city streets loom around them.

'Each photograph is a collaborative work of dance, fashion design and photography played out against the city's landscape,' Shitagi says.

He works with professional ballerinas, some retired and some currently at top ballet companies, and does about 40 photo shoots a year with dancers.

The Ballerina Project is one of the internet's most popular dance-related photography sites - the Instagram account currently has almost 240,000 subscribers, the Facebook page has almost 800,000 likes and the Tumblr account has all the latest images.

Daniel Franke & Cedric Kiefer "unnamed soundsculpture" and Brian Oakes "Marie"

Daniel Franke & Cedric Kiefer "unnamed soundsculpture" and Brian Oakes "Marie" | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

These two pieces use a Kinect and a dancer’s performance as the starting point for abstract imagery. Both are lovely, but the approaches evoke very different results.

unnamed soundsculpture by Daniel Franke & Cedric Kiefer
Franke and Kiefer’s dancer is the basis for a constantly evolving sand sculpture. My favorite parts are where big movements capture frozen echoes of the body and they hold in place for a split second before falling away.

Japanese photographer Shinichi Maruyama explores body movements through photography. Each image of abstract flesh-colored shapes are not long-exposure shots, rather composite images created by combining ten thousand photographs of the dancer—in turn showing the movement of the dancer.
