Ballerina Project:Elegant Ballerinas Take to the Streets
The Ballerina Project is an ongoing exploration of the elegant beauty of ballet dancers as seen through the lens of photographer Dane Shitagi. Rather than being confined to a studio, Shitagi prefers to photograph his subjects outside on the streets, inspired by the rawness and atmosphere of the living city.
Beautiful ballerinas strike graceful poses in the middle of bustling city streets, their elegant forms standing in stark contrast to the hard-edged shapes of the urban landscape. In each image, Shitagi manages to capture not just the ballerina’s skillful dance moves, but her emotions, soul, and passion for the extraordinary art of ballet.
Artist Lisa Adams creates beautiful paintings that express her inner feelings and her world view. She uses lots of details and allegorical symbolism to form her message that is yet to be unraveled by the viewer.
The self-taught artist spends several months on each oil painting, working 6 days a week in her isolated studio in Queensland, Australia
