Dancers have been drawn, painted, and photographed for as long as they have been around. But just what do they look like when not moving for an audience?
David Perkins presents an answer. The photographer has been snapping shots of dancers for more than a decade, but somewhere along the line found that his job had become less of an opportunity and more like work. The inevitable expenses and hassles of finding studios, lighting, and hair and makeup artists for a shoot had taken their toll. That’s when Perkins decided to photograph dancers in their natural element.
