[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text text_lead=”yes”]

Today we are happy to present one of our favorite photo series made by our friend Ira Yakovleva with a well known dancer of Eifman Ballet Maria Abashova.

Masha is one of the most popular models of the best dance photographers, her experience of photographic collaboration is huge. In our opinion, the results of their mutual work with Ira Yakovleva are always touching, intimate and express perfectly the mood of Saint Peterburg, the city so closely connected to the art of ballet.

Masha kindly answered the questions of our express interview:

  • Dear Maria, what are the components of an ideal photo session for you?
  • A photographer who I like, a day free of work so I don’t to hurry anywhere plus me.
  • Posing for a photographer, do you prefer to improvise or follow his strict instructions?
  • I prefer to improvise in the direction chosen by the photographer.
  • Open air shooting, stage or studio?
  • Photos made during open air shootings seem to be the most striking to me.
  • Ballet clothes or an out couture dress?
  • A simple black ballet body.
  • Colour or black and white?
  • Colour….and black and white!
  • Masha Abashova’s secret of a successful shooting.
  • You must be hungry! Being full you will not create anything good.
  • What is the most important trait of a talented photographer in his work with models?
