When it comes to fine art, both photography and ballet have the ability to capture incredible moments of magic. Put the two together, and you’ve got the work of Alexander Yakovlev. The artist is a Russian photographer based out of Moscow, and though he has a law degree, he has turned his sights to dance photography. And it’s a good thing, too: His images are some of the best out there. So, what makes his work so special? Yakovlev has an incredible eye for which dancers’ choreography and poses will make amazing photographs, and because of this, he manages to capture them at their most intense and dynamic moments. In addition to being a showcase of the art of ballet, it’s also an exquisite look at the power and strength of the human body. Anyone who has gone to the ballet live will appreciate these photos, and perhaps even mores so due to their incredibly detailed and nuanced nature. Take a look at the powerful images below.
