In the wings – English National Ballet

In the wings

A few years ago, I captured photos of English National Ballet dancers behind the scenes. It was our Christmas season, and we were performing “Nutcraker” and “Le Corsaire“.

During couple of weeks I would would try to get a glimpse of the action in the wings. Puting make up on, doing class, warming up, pretty much every dancer’s routine. I did find that doing that type of photography was a bit of a challenge for me. Always trying to keep the balance between capturing the essence of their dedication and respecting their intimacy getting ready to jump on stage.

I hope I did them justice as they work extremely hard before, during and after any show you would ever see.
