One of my favorite NYC sights is seeing dancers warming up in the subway…have you experienced it? You’re waiting for the train and all of a sudden the person standing next to you starts to do a plie. There’s just something about that kind of beauty against a urban backdrop.

Which is why I’m equally fascinated with a photo series that’s been around for sometime now, The Ballerina Project. It’s an ongoing  project by Dane Shitagi that depicts ballerinas amongst organic backdrops.

The project has been going steady for 10+ years in New York and now it’s trying to move on to a new phase – mini documentaries to compliment the photographs. Dane hope these will give new audiences a more complete and accurate representative of ballet to help sustain its future.

By Silvia Grav, a truly extraordinary set of black & white photographs from the Madrid-based artist, that have such beautiful concepts behind each image. There has been a wave of incredibly talented photographers with a knack for surreal manipulations recently, and these are some of the best I’ve seen. 

I like these
