Powerful photos of the body of Russian ballet dancers

Potentes fotos de bailarinas de Ballet ruso

St. Petersburg is a city with all kinds of arts, and it is a city with the greatest heritage of Russian classical ballet. Here it is also home to the extremely talented Russian photographer and professional dancer Darian Volkova, founder of the “Alma en pies” project.

As a dancer, Darian often travels around the world with her company, and as a ballet photographer she never forgets to take photos during her travels. Darian has taken photographs in almost all theaters from Russia to Iceland.

“I have given people classical ballet with the eyes of a dancer, this is what I do. As a spectator, you can see only one side of classical ballet, the world of beauty and lightness; But ballet is more than the world, this is the universe.

Ballet dancer who is also a photographer

At home, Darian photographs cousin dancers Mariinsky and Mikhailovsky, among others. She likes personalized photos. This may be similar to the myth about Pygmalion and Galatea, where she is a kind sculptor and the dancer is her creation that tries to make her live.

“My last destination was France. It was unforgettable! I always enjoy it, it's great to work with dancers from another country. They have a different ballet school, but this still makes us brothers of the same passion. ”
