Dramatic Portraits of Dancers So Energetic and Passionate They Could Dance out of the Photos
Watching a live dance performance can be an invigorating, emotional and moving experience. And capturing the amazing moments that make a performance so incredible is what studio-dance photographer Alexander Yakovlev does.
Yakovlev’s pictures are dramatic, powerful and evocative. He photographs professional dancers in expressive, contorted positions and sometimes even adds explosive elements like flour. You can see ballet, break-dancing, interpretive, modern and other dance styles in his photos.
Although each of these beautiful images is a snapshot of one dance move, one moment in time, together they capture all the emotion and energy involved in the art of dance.
